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: The Painkiller Project latest submission window opens 5 July
Description: The Painkiller Project is a playwriting project that runs every other month from Bitter Pill Theatre with a £200 prize for each winning play. The winning play will be produced and released on The Painkiller Podcast. They are looking for short plays of 500 – 1500 words long for 1 or 2 actors only.
Why is it so great? Take this as your warning that the next Painkiller project window opens on 5 July! That gives you plenty of time to get your short script ready for this brilliant opportunity! Winning plays not only receive £200 but will be released on the Painkiller Podcast (which is most definitely worth a listen to by the way!). Previous plays have been performed by the likes of Tamsin Greig, Miriam Margolyes, Toby Jones, Noma Dumezweni, Jason Watkins and Jessica Barden – so why not give it a go for a chance to be involved? As said above the window opens on 5 July and it closes on 8 July so get cracking!
