Heretic Productions have launched their new playwriting initiative Heretic Voices, and seek monologues from writers and writer-performers to be fully produced by professionals at the Arcola in January 2018. Plays will also be published in a collection.
Monologues can be of any genre and on any subject, and can feature more than one voice but must be performed by a single actor. Each piece must be between 15 – 45 minutes in length.
A shortlist of plays will be presented to the prestigious panel; Michael Billington, Lolita Chakrabarti, Monica Dolan and Mel Kenyon. The panel will then select the plays to be produced. Heretic Voices will assemble leading actors, directors, and creative teams to stage the chosen plays in early 2018. Writer-performers may perform their own work if selected, at the discretion of Heretic Voices.
What to submit/how to apply: Monologues must be in English and must not have been previously performed. To apply, send your monologue to firstname.lastname@example.org along with no more than 150 words about yourself. You can find the full guidelines here.
Deadline: 30 September 2017 at 5pm
