We’re delighted to announce that playwright Shahid Iqbal Khan will join Team Paines Plough on attachment in 2024.

We fell in love with Shahid’s writing when reading and seeing his play 10 Nights (a Tamasha / Graeae and Bush Theatre co-production) and have hoped to work with him ever since. While on attachment to us, he will write one full-length play, and via his base in Bury, will extend our team’s reach in seeing and championing new plays around the country.

Shahid joins our Fellowship recipient Somebody Jones as a new addition to Team PP. Both of them will bring their bold and brilliant voices to represent writers at the heart of our company over the next year.
