Just Some Theatre’s Forward Dialogue initiative invites writers of any experience to submit their unperformed and original scripts for developmental online readings with actors and directors.
They ask all applicants to submit a full (unperformed) theatre script. Their team will then select the top ten submissions and each shortlisted writer will be given a £70 fee for participation in the next stage, a reading of an extract (chosen by the writer), and feedback from an online audience, actors and a dramaturg/director.
The next round will see three of those scripts taken further, with each writer receiving an extra £150, plus a further, more in depth script reading, after which a final script will be chosen and the writer awarded an £800 prize and the option of having actors develop the script further, supported by Just Some Theatre.
They will also be offering production advice and helping to springboard scripts into production when the theatre industry is operating again.
Deadline: 2nd June at 12 noon
