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 firstname.lastname@example.org by 27th July 2015.
Successful writers will be notified by 17th August.
Deadline: 27 July 2015
