50/50 Gender Equality scratch night accepting submissions

AIAWTC presents…
“50/50” at Arts Above, upstairs at The Arts Theatre in the West End 30th March 2016. The night has been designed so that new and established theatre companies will have the chance
to perform, network, discuss, and most importantly celebrate equality in casting. Bringing together some of the most exciting emerging theatre companies in our egalitarian extravaganza!

They are looking for submissions of short scenes, monologues, and extracts from theatre – new writing
or exciting twists on well loved works.

They will compere the night so that the casts are equally
split men-to-women across the evening. But your scene could be all-male, all-female or something in between!

 What you get: a performance slot on our 50/50 day (matinee + evening performances) of a 5-15 minute scene and they will provide a two hour rehearsal slot in the space ahead of the performance day.


You’ll need to enter through Hiive. Please answer all the questions outlined in the application form.

Deadline: Friday 12th February at 5pm.

“Shortlisted candidates will be contacted on the 17th with an invitation to meet us w/c 22nd Feb.
At the next round we would like to meet with you to discuss and see a short section of your work.
We will notify the ten successful groups by the 29th Feb, allowing one month then to fully prepare the piece.
Each group will be allotted a two-hour rehearsal slot in the space ahead of the performance day”.
