Monkey wood Theatre seeking 5 minute plays from Manchester United football fans

Monkeywood Theatre return to The Lowry in September 2015 with BY FAR THE GREATEST TEAM, a brand new show exploring and celebrating football fandom in Manchester.

Alongside the production, they are seeking 5-minute plays from Manchester United and Manchester City fans about what it is to be a football fan.

In their own words:

We’ll select 10 of these plays to make up TEN TINY PLAYS ABOUT FOOTBALL, which will be performed script-in-hand by professional actors at The Lowry in September alongside the main production of BY FAR THE GREATEST TEAM. 

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never written before – all you need is to be a Manchester football fan with a story to tell.  Your play can take any form you wish (dialogue, monologue, even silent!) as long as it runs at approximately 5 minutes (think 5 pages of evenly spaced dialogue as an approximate guide).

How to apply:  There is no fee for entry and this is an unpaid opportunity.  Please send your finished plays to info@monkeywoodtheatre.co.uk by 27th July 2015.

Successful writers will be notified by 17th August.

Deadline:  27 July 2015
