What we do.

Lonely Company make the life of playwrights less lonely and more sustainable. We also foster a supportive playwriting community. Playwrights are often expected to write a first draft on their own before. We believe in supporting playwrights from the beginning of their creative process. We do this by providing:

  • Year long writer residencies with us in our Southbank studios. We offer desk space, as well as one-on-one dramaturgical support, while they write a first draft of a new work.

  • Community events. We bring people together for readings, panels, discussions, and workshops.

  • Beta Fest. Our biannual festival of the unfinished play.

  • Other stuff, as it occurs to us.
