About Bitter Pill Theatre

The Painkiller Project has been producing audio drama and supporting up and coming playwrights since April 2020 - after UK theatres were forced to close due to the outbreak of Covid-19.

Since then we have had the chance to work with some incredibly talented writers, directors actors and designers to create the Painkiller Podcast.

Each submission window we receive around 250 scripts. With our dedicated team of readers, we work through these submissions before picking winning plays. Each writer receives £150, they are paired with a director and then involved with casting, rehearsing and editing of their audio play.

So far the project has been a huge success. Over a 2000 playwrights have sent us work and the podcast has featured some of the UK's most acclaimed actors: Toby Jones, Noma Dumezweni, Tamsin Greig and Miriam Margolyes to mention just a few.

We do not receive any public funding and rely on receiving donations from those who believe in the project.

There is nothing that will ensure the sustainability of the project more than becoming a patron. It allows us to predict what we might be able to do tomorrow and 6 months from now and gives the project a secure future.

Thank you very much for your support - it means the world to us.
