Escape the Scaffold – Theatre503 writers’ night and rapid write response

Theatre503 is inviting writers to come along to a writers’ night to take part in its ‘rapid write response scheme’ to see your script staged.

How does it work? Writers are invited to come along to the writers’ night to see a Theatre503 show, with tickets at a discounted rate, talk to members of the literary department and take part in the rapid write response scheme.

  • Writers night is the first Wednesday of all four-week shows.
  • Rapid write response is a short play initiative open to writers of all levels of experience. Attend a full-run show in its first week and write a 10 minute play inspired by the show. Deadline for submissions is always the following Monday at 12 noon. The 503 team will select between 6 and 8 scripts to be staged at a Theatre503 showcase two weeks later.

When is it? The latest writers‘ night is for Escape the Scaffold by Titas Halder. It will be held on 22 March 2017, followed by the showcase on the 9-10 April.
