"Remarkable unearthers of new talent." The Evening Standard

Papatango uncover the best and brightest new playwriting talent in the UK and Ireland, with an absolute commitment to bringing such work to the stage.

We run a range of free initiatives for playwrights at all levels, all accessed via anonymous entry and open to all residents of the UK or Ireland, guaranteeing that talent is our only criterion in uncovering and selecting brilliant new writing.

We produce two world premieres a year, touring to a range of venues, and publish all our writers. We also commission new plays, provide feedback to all submissions, and run playwriting workshops for over 4000 people each year.
