Following the success of last year’s Hotel Plays, Defibrillator Theatre is now seeking submissions for a Writer-in-Residence for its second collaboration with the Langham, of a play to be staged in the hotel. The production – The 1865 Project – will celebrate the hotel’s 150th anniversary. It is hoped the residency will run on an annual basis in the future.
The selected writer will receive a £5,000 commission to write the script, a five week production run, and a hospitality package worth £7,000 from The Langham.
The winner will be announced on 27 October 2014, with the show to run in March 2015.
How to apply: Defibrillator invites writers to submit a brief summary of their idea and approach for the show, with an entry deadline of 29 September, 2014 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: 29 September 2014
