At Durham Student Theatre we are extremely passionate about new writing. Lots of our affiliate theatre companies support and put on new writing in the form of new writing showcases, scratch nights and full length original plays, musicals, and adaptations. As a member of DST we will let you know about all new writing opportunities within DST. We also work with Purple Radio and Durham Student Productions who often send out calls for new writing for radio plays and short films.
