About BST Script Reports:
Broken Silence Theatre’s Script Reports is a new service that provides analytical and dramaturgical feedback and advice to playwrights. As new writing experts, we’re passionate about supporting playwrights and have developed tailored Script Report services to help you achieve your writing goals.
As a company, we’ve been developing and producing award-winning new writing for over 7 years. Using our extensive experience and industry knowledge, our detailed script reports and specialist feedback can help you take your script to the next level or give that much needed reassurance before submitting to playwriting competitions, theatres or producers.
Our script reports are typically 2-3 pages in length and are sent to you within 3 weeks of us receiving your script. All script reports are compiled by a member of our core artistic team and are thoughtful, constructive and full of encouragement and advice.
Our core artistic team have worked at leading theatres/arts venues, including:
Soho Theatre, Paines Plough, Wyndham’s Theatre, Arcola Theatre, Park Theatre, Theatre503, Finborough Theatre, King’s Head Theatre, Old Red Lion Theatre, Hope Theatre, Towner Gallery.

James McDermott, writer of the acclaimed ‘Time and Tide’, Park Theatre:
“Broken Silence Theatre provided me with detailed feedback on my play ‘Fifty Years’, which helped me re-see the play and find the story I wanted to write behind the story I'd written. They’ve helped me develop my craft and build my profile as a playwright and have supported many other writers to grow and connect.”
Rachel Tookey, winner of Methuen Drama/Marlowe Society ‘Other Prize’ for ‘Bromley Bedlam Bethlehem’:
“The support and feedback I’ve received from Broken Silence Theatre meant I could unabashedly call myself a writer and gave me the confidence to be bigger and bolder with my own writing. It helped take the pressure off, and get me back to a space where I could be living and enjoying my writing.”
Further Information (including T&C’s):
Scripts should be formatted in 12-point font and be either standard or double spaced.
Scripts must adhere to the page limits as stated for each service. If the script you send us exceeds the page limit, then you will be asked to submit the script again (within the page limit) or our readers will report to the page limit as outlined.
If your script is longer than 80 pages and you wish to discuss Script Report options, then please contact us via email for a tailored quote.
When you purchase one of our Script Report packages, we will contact you within 5 working days to request a copy of your script and ask a couple of initial questions, including your primary reason for seeking feedback. Once we have received the script, you will receive your script report within 3 weeks.
Follow up questions for all Script Report services can be sent to us via email up to 1 week after you’ve received your report.
One-to-one feedback sessions for our Gold Package will be arranged via email after you’ve received your script report. These sessions take place via Zoom.
