'SPARK' is Burning House's new development arm. We spend a lot of time with classics here at Burning House, but we're also passionate about working with the writers of today and tomorrow as well.

To that effect as of June 2018, we will be launching our 'SPARK' programme - a chance to provide to playwrights dramaturgical support for six months. This will include one-on-one monthly dramaturgy meetings with our Artistic Director, and a private reading or workshop organised by Burning House. In addition, Burning House will promote any activities the participants are involved in through their online channels for the duration of the six months. 

Applications will be open until the end of April, and will be read by the Burning House team. All applicants, regardless of success will be contacted by the end of May.

We value innovation, ambition and theatricality here at Burning House, and will be looking to choose two scripts that exemplify these qualities. In addition, we have a preference for plays that deal with current environmental or technological issues, but will not limit our decision to these factors. We encourage any interested party to apply - regardless of age, race and ability.

To apply, please send a copy of your script in pdf. form to, a resume, and a short paragraph detailing what you would like to gain from this opportunity.

We look forward to hearing from you!
