Channel 4 Playwrights' Scheme.

We’re delighted to announce that Zia Ahmed will be on attachment with PP in 2017 as a recipient of a bursary from the Channel 4 Playwrights’ Scheme.

The Playwrights’ Scheme awards five bursaries a year to new theatre writers. Zia will now spend a year on attachment to PP while he works on a full-length play.

We first worked with Zia in 2016 when - along with Tamasha - we commissioned him to write a short play about his home in North West London for our COME TO WHERE I'M FROM: LONDON series.

You can listen to Zia’s Come To Where I'm From play, and 150 other short audio plays, for free on our app available for download here.
