Writer testimonials:

  • Lucy Dobree, writer on the Off-West End award-nominated Voices From Home:

"Broken Silence Theatre's Script Report service was just what I was looking for. Encouraging but thought provoking feedback that really made me feel like my play had been read carefully and thoroughly. It's excellent value and the report has already helped me take the piece to the next level. I'd thoroughly recommend Broken Silence for anyone looking for coverage."

  • 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.”
