Fishamble’s Aims

Fishamble has moved its script submissions system online and hope to

  • discover new voices;
  • allow greater accessibility;
  • offer some thoughts and guidance as to how best develop your play;
  • where appropriate, offer some thoughts as to how you might pursue your writing/project further.​

Fishamble seeks to tell the story of Ireland, and to engage with a wide range of communities, through discovering, developing and producing plays by Irish writers, and writers living on the island of Ireland. It aims to reflect contemporary Ireland through bringing a diverse range of voices to the stage, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, civil or family status, religion, age, or socio-economic background.  Fishamble actively encourages submissions from underrepresented and marginalised voices including, but not limited to, people who identify as: BIPOC, members of the Traveller community, neurodivergent people, LGBTQI+, migrants, and people with disabilities.
