About The Ceiling Project

The Ceiling Project is a platform for new musical theatre writing.

This year we commissioned women-led teams to write short new musical theatre pieces, around the theme of untold and inspirational stories about women in historical and contemporary settings.

We sought several short, 15-20 minute musical theatre pieces that will be presented in one show. These are not excerpts - these are self contained stories and musicals. We are now creating one show to be performed, which is stitched together on themes in the works.

The shows will next be workshopped with a professional director, music director and actors, before being presented to investors, venues and more in the hopes we can take the project into a commercial run or tour.

We received submissions from all over the world - from the US and Australia and all over the UK, from more than 30 talented female led writing teams.
