The future of the fringe is here!


Playmill is the King's Head Theatre's festival of brand new work. For two weeks every July, we open our doors to the UK's most exciting, bold and ambitious emerging companies. Whether you're looking for a venue to host your London previews before heading off to the Edinburgh Fringe or just want to premiere a piece at one of London’s top Off-West End venues, we want to hear from you. What’s more, we’re after drama, comedy, musical theatre, spoken word and everything in between! 

In 2019, Playmill will run from Monday 8 to Saturday 20 July. To submit your show for consideration, please click below to access the application form. The deadline for submissions is 6.00pm on Friday 15 February


Please note that we are only accepting shows with a maximum running time of sixty minutes.
