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 by 27th July 2015.

Successful writers will be notified by 17th August.

Deadline:  27 July 2015
