Software Proposal

for

Play Theatre


Background

This is Play Theatre

Play Theatre is writing software for individuals who want planned, industry-formatted, theatre scripts for all aspiring and established playwrights.

This proposal will outline our conceptualisation and growth processes.

The Product

Pain Point

Why we came up with Play Theatre

The idea for Play Theatre came about through an opportunity to convert our successful book series to an adapted play.

Not knowing how to write a play, we looked online and the only writing tools were for film or television scripts.

Having identified the opportunity to address a gap in the market, we validated our ideas through surveys and focus groups involving individuals in the theatre world.

This provided us with the knowledge that there is demand for a product like this. Ranging from students to professionals who have all been frustrated with current writing tools.
