Eligibility:  NP says please apply only if you know you will be able to commit to these dates.

What you get: Due to budget constraints, NP is unable to provide any economical support on props purchased, costume or rehearsal space.  There is however a contribution guaranteed ONLY upon 80% box office reached.  Director- Writers= 50 GBP each.

What to submit:

  • Time frame 50-60s
