As part of Vibrant 2017 – A Festival of Finborough Playwrights, Finborough Theatre are looking for an unperformed short play or a twenty-page excerpt from an unperformed full-length script.
The scripts submitted will be part of Introduce Yourself, an initiative that aims to offer writers feedback on their scripts. The winning play will receive feedback from the literary department at the Finborough. There is also the chance to introduce yourself personally to Neil McPherson, the artistic director of the Finborough Theatre or Sue Healy, the literary manager every Wednesday evening while Vibrant is on.
In their words: “The play can be on any subject and in any style. We want to read what you are passionate about – don’t impose themes or subjects or time limits on your writing. There is no age limit but writers must be resident in the UK and have never previously submitted work to the Finborough Theatre. This is a great opportunity to get feedback on your work. Last year we had over 200 submissions, one of which went on to be performed as a full-length play. “
How to apply: Applications must be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the words ‘Introduce Yourself’ in the subject line and attach the script in PDF form. You also need to include a play synopsis and a bit about you – be that a CV, bio or a little letter about your musical preferences!
Deadline: 26 October 2017
