About BST Script Reports:
Broken Silence Theatre’s Script Reports is a new service that provides dramaturgical feedback and advice to playwrights. As new writing experts, we’re passionate about supporting playwrights and have created a tailored series of Script Report services to help you achieve your writing goals.
Using our extensive experience and knowledge of the theatre industry, our detailed reports can help you take your play or work-in-progress to the next level, and give you that much needed reassurance before submitting to playwriting competitions, theatres or producers.
Script Report length and turnaround time:
BST Script Reports are typically 2-3 pages in length and will be sent to you within 3 weeks of us receiving your script. All Script Reports are compiled by an experienced member of our script reading team and are thoughtful, constructive and full of encouragement.

James McDermott, writer of the acclaimed ‘Time and Tide’ at the 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):
