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.
Description: Heretic Productions have launched their new playwriting initiative Heretic Voices, and seek monologues from writers and writer-performers to be fully produced by professionals at the Arcola in January 2018. Plays will also be published in a collection. Monologues can be of any genre and on any subject, and can feature more than one voice but must be performed by a single actor. Each piece must be between 15 – 45 minutes in length.
What’s so great about it? Whether you’re an emerging writer or already becoming established, this is a fantastic opportunity to work with industry professionals and have work produced at a prestigious London venue. As the genre isn’t specified, you can use your creative freedom to explore any subject matter – or develop an idea you’ve already been busy working on! As well as this, your work will be judged by an impressive panel of experts: Michael Billington, Lolita Chakrabarti, Monica Dolan and Mel Kenyon. So, if you’re a writer who wants a chance of having your work produced in London’s ever-growing theatre scene, this could be the opportunity for you. Monologues must be in English and must not have been previously performed and you’ve got until 30 September to get your submissions in.
