We like to think we're a friendly bunch, and we're always keen to make new friends.
If you think you might want to come and play with us have a look below to see how you can get involved with all the action here at Bring Out Your Dead HQ.
Work With Us
We love working with new people and we're especially interested in collaborating with recent graduates and people who, like us, are at the beginning of their creative careers. So don't be shy! Whether you're an actor, director, writer, producer, designer, or technician, send us your CV and a covering email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Actors: please send a headshot along with your CV and covering email.
Designers: please send your portfolio/examples of recent work along with your CV and covering email.
Writers: please send an example of something you have written recently. If you want to send us a specific piece of writing please see our section on New Writing below.
We probably won't be able to offer you a job straight away, but we'll hang onto your details and keep you in mind for future projects.
We are pleased to say that we accept unsolicited script submissions. We have to be honest: the likelihood of us staging your piece any time soon isn't high. We're still a very small company and the number of productions we are able to put on a year is limited, but we're very happy to read your script and offer some impartial feedback. We are sometimes even able to arrange read-throughs with a circle of play-readers that includes professional actors, directors, writers, and dramaturgs. Bring Out Your Dead has a particular interest in new writing that adapts old stories in interesting ways, but don't let that brief stop you from sending your work to us; we're genuinely happy to help emerging writers working in all kinds of genres and styles. You can send a PDF copy of your script to: email@example.com
