IdeasTap have launched a new creative brief with Ensemble UK. They are looking to work with up to three writers on a series of 20-minute plays supported by the crime prevention charity Only Connect.
The winners of this brief will get the opportunity to develop a play over a period of three months from June to August 2014 with actors from EnsembleUK and Only Connect. They will be mentored and supported throughout the process. The plays will then run at the Only Connect Theatre in King’s Cross.
Two runners-up will have the chance to have their scripts produced as radio plays, recorded in the Only Connect recording studios, and broadcast on their radio station.
The judges are looking for considered and original script ideas from writers that show promise of really benefitting from the workshop process and showcase opportunity.
