Situated in the city’s heart, Birmingham’s Repertory Theatre is a world-class institution producing inclusive, exciting, and exceptional content.

In partnership with the Victoria Wood Foundation, the Rep is facilitating the UK’s only playwriting competition dedicated to the art of Comedy. Submitted Scripts must be full-length (upwards of 70 minutes), contain more than one act and utilise comedy (Verbal and visual in script/or staging) as the driving force of action in the play. The successful playwright will receive a commission fee of £10,000 and an additional £15,000 prize money.
