Chesil Theatre | TakeTen New Writing Competition 2023 | Snakes & Ladders

Writers from across the UK are invited to enter Chesil Theatre’s TakeTen New Writing Festival. The festival’s theme is ‘Snakes and Ladders’, which can be interpreted in so many ways and across every theatrical genre, from plays about life’s ups and downs, successes and failures, and amazing turnabouts in fortune.

The winning 10 writers are announced in November with the plays given their premiere at four performances over the weekend of 24th/25th February 2024. The theme gives the opportunity for treatment in a wide variety of styles and theatre genres, ensuring an amazing programme when the winning pieces are performed back-to-back.

The rules for TakeTen are simple:

  • Plays need to be 10 minutes in length.
  • Scripts can include one to four actors, with minimum props, lighting and sound.
  • Works must be original, unperformed and unpublished.

Deadline: 23.59 BST on Friday 2nd June 2023
