Each week we look through our pile of writing opportunities to pick out one we think is particularly worth your time. It could be an innovative brief, great prize money, a high-profile company, or just plain fun.
This week’s pick: Soggy Brass @ Southwark Playhouse
Description: Soggy Brass will be bringing its successful new writing night back to the Southwark Playhouse in March 2015, and is seeking unperformed comedic pieces to stage. Pieces need to be self-contained (i.e., not sketches) and should run between 10-15 minutes in length.
So, what’s so great about it? It’s unusual to get paid for performances of short plays, but this opportunity will provide a £50 fee for selected writers, a wonderful bonus on top of having your work staged. Additionally, while you’re encouraged to bring in people you’d like to work with (cast, director), they’re also happy to provide support if you’d like a bit of help in putting together your creative team. You’ve got until 7 February to get your submission in, so dust the holiday cobwebs off that desk and get writing!
