Marking up the script

Submissions

SCRIPT SUBMISSIONS

We make up to five productions from unsolicited scripts a year. If you have a script you would like us to consider, please send over a ONE PAGE (or less) pitch containing:

– A synopsis of your idea

– Why it would work as an audio drama

– How many characters you expect it to have and a short paragraph about you as a writer.

Please send these embedded into the body of the email to info@wirelesstheatre.co.uk.

We very much hope that this process will allow us to respond much faster to submissions – we apologise for the long delays many of you have had when sending us your scripts, we are a very small team. Here is an example of our preferred Audio Drama Formatting Sample – ideally all scripts would follow this format.

Writers retain copyright of their scripts, WTC own the copyright of the production. Accepting an offer of production with us means you agree to this.

Due to the high number of submissions we receive, you will only hear from us if your submission is successful. In 2019 we produced four original audio dramas (one series) from writers who submitted scripts via the above process.

AUDIBLE/BBC

We are mega proud to be regular content creators for Audible UK and BBC Radio 4.

If you have an idea you’d like us to pitch to Audible, please send us a short half page pitch, highlighting in particular why you think your drama would work for their platforms (they look for long content in particular) and with a rough outline of the story.

If you’d like us to consider pitching your idea to the BBC, please supply a 250 word pitch. The BBC audio drama guidelines for 2020 can be found here.

ONCE ACCEPTED..

Your scripts may be edited for structure, typos and continuity. You may occasionally be asked for re-writes.

Due to the high number of productions we already have lined up, it may be many months before your script is produced. But it will be worth the wait!

ACTORS

We welcome applications from actors and actresses. Once you become a member of the performance team then you will become part of of the company and will undoubtedly be involved in more audio plays, if you are interested.
Please contact us with a covering email, containing the details of your Spotlight and/or Casting Call Pro page, especially if you have online voice-reels to info@wirelesstheatre.co.uk.


Submissions including a link to a voice-reel will be considered first.

Please Note: You won’t get a reply when you send us your details, as we are lucky enough to receive many applications and we can’t acknowledge all of them. But all actor submissions are read and are kept on file – available to all our directors when casting. If you do not have a voice reel, perhaps you’d be interested in recording one with us: WIRELESS VOICEREELS

To be notified as soon as new audiodrama releases are uploaded. We’re really careful not to send out endless emails, and try to keep it to only one or two a month – this may be slightly more if we have a live radio drama recording planned or some audio production news we can’t possibly keep quiet about, but never, ever more than 2 emails in one month!
