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: Chesil Theatre seeking plays on ‘Hidden Worlds’ for 10×10 Playwriting Competition
Description: Chesil Theatre is inviting submissions of ten-minute plays based on the theme, HIDDEN WORLDS. Ten plays will be selected for performances at the 10×10 New Writing Festival to be held in October 2018. The aim of 10×10 is to discover, promote and produce the very best new writing of ten-minute plays.
What’s so great about it? If you fancy getting those creative juices flowing and writing a short play on a specific theme, this is a great opportunity to submit to a festival which has a proven track record. Former 10×10 winners have gone on to have their plays produced at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe Festivals, the London Fringe and at various other locations across the UK and worldwide – and other past winners have subsequently formed their own theatre companies and been signed by literary agents.
So, you want to join the ranks of these success stories and get your work performed at the 10×10 New Writing Festival, submit your short play (along with a synopsis and an application form) by 30 March 2018.
