Peggy Ramsay Grants

19th January 2011

The Peggy Ramsay Foundation was established in 1992 in accordance with the Will of Peggy Ramsay, the well-known play agent. The trustees of the foundation offer grants to assist individuals who make the theatre their principal place of work and have had some experience. It takes applications on a year-round basis from playwrights seeking bursary funding.

The trustees will consider an application from a playwright resident in the UK and Ireland who has had at least one full length play in English professionally produced for a run for an audience of adults or young people.

Individual grants never ordinarily exceed £5,000. Grants are sometimes made for equipment needed by qualified applicants, such as laptops, and for expenditure which makes writing possible. In every case whether a grant is made or not the applicant will be notified but reasons for grants or refusals are never given.

More details about the application process are available on the web site.
