Keep an eye out for our next PEN date

Following the sold out success of our last PEN in May, we're keen to get back up and running very soon.  If you'd like to get involved, take a look at our submissions info below. More details of the submissions window will come closer to the time, so keep an eye on our social media for updates!


PEN is our series of politically driven, curated scratch nights.

Our aim is to create a nation wide network of political theatre makers - be that drama, comedy, sketch, stand-up, performance art, spoken word...if you have something to say we want to hear from you.

All evenings will be curated by Pennyworth and we can cast/direct your pieces if you wish, but we are also happy for companies to use PEN as an opportunity to get work on its feet. 

The idea is to champion theatre makers, offer networking opportunities and for regional writers to have their voices heard in the big smoke (and vice versa). Each night will be an exciting and diverse mix of work from across the UK.

If you'd like to get involved in any future PEN events, please read our submissions pack (above!) and send us an email. Please also share the opportunity and event with your mates - the more people we can reach, the better the show will be.

To get an idea of the kind of acts we've been supporting through PEN, take a look at the programmes from our first few shows.
