Just Some Theatre seeking new writers for script development

Just Some Theatre Company are looking for new writers to work with on three new script development projects. They are looking to commission writers for three new full length scripts, all based in England between 1900-1950.

They have two ideas to commission, and are looking for fresh ideas for the third script, so feel free to send in anything you have that fits with the time period and could be developed.

In their words:

We are a new writing company and we’re committed to helping writers get a good start to their careers, and commission new shows for UK tours and London productions. So this is a great way for us to get to know you and your work!

Writers can send up to 3 samples of their work, each up to ten pages in length. If submitting something for our third undecided play please include a synopsis of up to a page and feel free to send the whole script, or a section if you prefer.

We always get a lot of applicants and there are only a few of us so we might not be able to reply to all applicants individually, but rest assured we will read all submissions and will get back to successful applicants by January.

This is a paid opportunity, the successful writer will be paid for the development of the script and then a separate deal for performance rights.

How to submit: Please send your scripts in PDF format to justsometheatre@hotmail.co.uk

Deadline: 5 December 2015
