Script Writing

A bespoke script-writing service

If you're a theatre company, director, producer or theatre school looking for exciting new writing - why not get a bespoke play created. 

We will write and tailor a play to the needs and topics of your group.

Whether that is a 10 minute comedy play for a cast of 3.
A 45 minute drama for 18 young people in an ensemble.
Or a short horror film script.

We can help. 

Underlines Founder Antonia Underwood has experience of writing for different requirements, topics and for varying age-groups, through commissions and through creating her own work. 


Step 1: Consultation

We can offer you a free consultation via phone or email where we discuss the project. You may have a certain topic that you would like us to write about, or we can discuss possibilities and come up with suggestions for you. This is our chance to find out all of the information to help us meet your needs. 

Step 2: Overview

An outline will be provided to you, following our consultation.
This will also inform you of commission cost and explain the time-line of the writing process. We will also provide specific terms and conditions for your script.

Step 3: Payment One 

Once you have agreed to the overview, you will be required to pay half of the fee. This amount will be non-refundable should you decide to cancel our service after 24 hours of paying (This is to ensure we get paid for the research, planning, time and writing that goes into it). From then we will get to work writing your script and will remain in contact with you as we develop your project. Throughout the writing time we will happily send you snippets of the script for you to read.

*Please note, if for any unforeseen reason we cancel the service, a full refund will be made.

Step 4: Payment Two
In our overview we will let you know when payment two is due - this will be towards the end of our writing process. 

Step 5: Receive Script
Once the payment and the overview timeline is complete , you will receive the full script and have a time period to get back to us with any edits you would like to be made. 


Script writing fees will vary on each project. The fees cover planning, research and writing as well as our time and skill.
