Casting | Writing | Submissions


In a bid to develop, network, collaborate with and champion more emerging Welsh female playwrights Chippy Lane is setting up a monthly Writer’s Group. This month’s session is kindly being hosted by the fantastic Out Of Joint. The group will be led by Artistic Director of Chippy Lane, Becca Hammond.

If you are Welsh, living in London and are keen to develop your work as a playwright, then we want to hear from you!

This month’s session will is now full. Look out for next July’s group!

We’re hoping it will be fun, friendly, supportive and informative. A chance for creative women to get together and talk things through. Writing can be a very isolating and lonely process so it would be good to share your work in a safe environment with other Welsh females in London. You will be free to do the following in the session:

Bring in any work in progress.
Extracts or scenes to be read.
Treatments and briefs.
Ideas or drafts.
Simply come along for a listen and a chat.

To enable everyone to get a fair amount of time in sessions to discuss their work we will be keeping group sizes small. Spaces will be given on a first come basis so if you can attend do email us promptly via email

We look forward to hearing from you.


Annually we host a Chippy & Scratch Shorts Night. This is a great opportunity for Welsh and Wales based writers to showcase new work in progress, in front of an audience and panel of industry professionals. On the night a winner is decided by an industry panel and receives a Welsh wooden plaque crowned “Chippy & Scratch Best Playwright”. The submission window for our next Shorts Night will open in late spring 2019. For further information please email

*Please note we can only collaborate, create and produce the work of writers who are Welsh born or currently Wales based in keeping with our ethos to champion Welsh and Wales based creatives in and beyond Wales. 



We are always keen to hear from emerging and established Welsh and Non-Welsh Directors. Please send us your CV via email and we will add you to our database and will always be in touch with any future directing opportunities with Chippy Lane. 


We have a packed database of over 300 Welsh and Non-Welsh actors and we are always happy to hear from more. If you are interested in future casting opportunities for any of our events or projects please send us an email with your spotlight link to


We are fanatical about our social media. It’s a great way to engage, connect and meet fellow creatives and we would encourage you to follow us to keep updated with all things Chippy Lane Productions. Facebook | Twitter | Instagram
