Constructive critique for plays. The suggestions
we make in our critiques can transform good writing into
published or competition-winning writing.
We have a number of reviewers with a specific
background in this area so we’re
delighted we can offer our appraisal service for stage or radio plays. (Sorry,
no film or TV scripts, but visit Hayley Mackenzie at Script
Please submit up to 60 A4 pages, double-spaced,
with 2.5cm margins and a type-size of 11 point or larger.
(We don’t give a wordcount for plays because of their
very different format from a novel.)
Up to 60 pages: 1 critique £69;
2 critiques £99
This is probably a little over half the length
of a play with a running time of 3 hours. You’re
welcome to include a synopsis of up to 1,000 words. The
60 pages must be contiguous, and we recommend they’re
the first 60 pages – a publisher, director or radio
producer will always be most influenced by the first few
pages, so it’s sensible to include these.
If you would like us to supply critique(s)
for your play in its entirety, different rates apply.
61 to 120 pages: 1 critique £95;
2 critiques £149
If your play is longer than this, please email
us for a quote.
