New Writing

YSCP is a keen collaborator in the development of new writing. This has been forged through strong links with Script Yorkshire (York Branch).

Our main event is Script Factor 

Script Factor is held at the Studio, York Theatre Royal and at The Basement at City Screen York

Scripts by local writers are performed, sight-unseen-script-in-hand, by YSCP and audience volunteers. It’s a great night out and the audience members get to vote for their favourite play. Script Factorculminates in an exciting All-Winners Final, where the previous script writers go head to head to win the coveted trophy.

We also held a successful Yorkwrite  event, in 2010 & 2011 and following a competitive selection process, three new short plays by local writers were each given a full production in the Studio at York Theatre Royal
