Actor Awareness accepting submissions on theme of Mental Health for scratch night

Following their successful Intergenerational Night the theme of the next Actor Awareness New Writing night is Mental Health.

The rules are as follows:

  • The writing can be about anything but it has to link in with a story on Mental Health.
  • They are looking for 4 pieces of new writing to perform. These can be new scripts, monologues, extracts of longer pieces, etc.
  • The evening will be part of the Actor Awareness partnership with Spotlight, so it is a paid opportunity, taking place in their studios in the heart of the West End.
  • The shows have to be no more than 15 minutes long, maximum 3 actors per show, plus the writer/ director, so 4 members in total for each group.

They always have an industry panel in on the night to give feedback. Last time this included a publisher, casting director, producer & agent.

The date of the show will be 7th October.

How to apply: send all submissions to the Actor Awareness new writing producer Stephanie Perry at Please only attach your script, your name and a short synopsis of the piece, nothing else, no CV, they like blind casting.

Deadline: 8 September 2018
