The British Theatre Challenge will select 5 plays to receive a week's performance at the Jack Studio Theatre which will be developed by professional directors and performed by professional actors.

The winning works will also be given written assessments by theatre professionals and be considered for publication by the competition's partnered publishers.

And the finished productions will be filmed in performance by Mini Mammoth Films with a public audience voting for their favourite!
