The Dramatists Guild are now accepting submissions for a new virtual DG Footlights available to dramatists living in the United Kingdom. This opportunity is free, and anyone who has written a play or musical for the stage may submit their work.
Virtual Footlights reading dates are available on the following Wednesdays at 7pm BST:
- 15 April, 2020
- 22 April, 2020
- 29 April, 2020
- 6 May, 2020
This opportunity is best suited for dramatists who have completed at least one full draft of a full-length play or musical, are ready to hear it read out loud, and are interested in audience response/feedback. All readings will be free and open for anyone to attend, published on the DG Resource Calendar, and included in their weekly newsletters, which are made available to the entirety of the Dramatists Guild membership.
If you are interested please email Jordan Stovall ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) with your name and address, the name of the play, the length, a short synopsis, and your goals for the reading. Applicants should indicate whether they would like to be considered for one, some, or all of the above dates. Please note that Footlights participants will be selected at random via lottery.
Deadline: 5pm Sunday 29th March.
