Setting Out Your Script

A clear layout helps us read your script quickly and easily. Here are some points to bear in mind when committing your script to paper:

• Scripts should be typed if possible, using one side of the paper only. If you cannot get hold of a typewriter please write your script neatly.

• If you have a computer, you can send your script to the e-mail address below.

• Names of characters should be clearly separated from speech and should be given in full throughout.

• Sound effects (FX) should contrast clearly with speech.

• Please attach a synopsis (a brief summary) of the play to the completed script, together with a full cast list and brief notes on the characters.

• If sending by post, please make sure that all pages are numbered consecutively and securely fastened.
