We produce the best new plays for young adult audiences and curious others, that are relevant, contemporary and ambitious.
Boundless Theatre is committed to discovering the best new plays from playwrights who might not be known to us. We are looking for bold, imaginative work for 15–25 year olds that speaks to the world now from diverse voices. We also champion work in translation and commission new plays from writers that are relevant and exhilarating for young adult audiences.
We welcome scripts from writers’ agents and enquiries from playwrights directly as well as receiving unsolicited submissions from playwrights without an agent in dedicated submission windows (watch this page, or join our mailing list for more information on submission windows). Agents submitting a play or any other enquiry should be sent to email@example.com
We currently read plays in English (including plays translated into English). If you have a play not in English that you believe may be suitable to our audiences then please get in touch with us by email and we will respond directly with any opportunity for it to be read.
What is a Boundless Play
We believe that the best plays for 15-25 year olds are created with this audience specifically in mind and champion any writer who wants to make work that is ambitious and reflects positively our shared diverse culture.
We are committed to reflecting the true diversity of experience and a plural culture in the UK across all of our work so particularly welcome work that may reflect perspectives not often seen.
We can only consider unsolicited submissions that are for live performance and do not read:
– radio plays
We are interested in work that may take place outside of conventional theatre settings and are happy to enter in to a conversation during our submission window with any writer should they have questions about their submission.
Natives is a rallying cry to a generation of unlikely heroes, and celebrates coming of age online in a chaotic world.
Natives by Glenn Waldron premiered at Southwark Playhouse in March 2017, produced by Boundless Theatre and directed by Rob Drummer.

“Glenn Waldron totally taps into the voice of youth, I wholly believed it.”
