Down Stage Write – Write Up! 2021

As part of their Arts Council-funded writer development programme Write Up! 2021Down Stage Write are looking for Devon and Cornwall-based playwrights who have a full-length play for 1-3 actors which they wish to develop.

They’re looking for bold plays with something to say about the world today, rooted in but not limited by the region.

3 plays will be given a one-day workshop/reading with professional actors and directors and dramaturgical feedback from the team at Down Stage Write.

There will be subsequent opportunities for some plays to be considered for a 2 and 5-day rehearsed reading workshop.

All writers that apply will be added to the Down Stage Write mailing list and kept informed of future opportunities. They’re keen to use this call-out not only to find the plays for workshopping but also to ‘meet’ writers and learn about their work.

You should be:

• A playwright of any age and experience level

• Based in Devon and/or Cornwall

Your play should be:

• 60+ minutes

• For stage

• For 1-3 Actors

• Original (not an adaptation or translation)

• Unproduced or developed elsewhere

Writers please submit:

• A short bio (300 words max.) about you and your work

• A short paragraph detailing what you would want to get from the reading workshop (200 words max.)

• Your script in a recognised stage format in Word or PDF format
