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: The BRIT School are currently looking for a playwright for their graduate theatre company The Bridge to write their 2017/18 production.
What’s so great about it? This is a professional, paid opportunity to write a play for The Bridge Company, a training initiative run by the BRIT School’s Theatre department on a professional theatre model.
The chosen playwright will initially work with the company and the director one day a week to workshop the development of ideas, which will then culminate in writing a 70 minute play for a three week in run in London.
We’re always happy to see real job opportunities for playwrights, especially one like this where the successful writer will have their work performed on stage by professionals linked with a highly prestigious organisation such as the Brit School. They are looking writers with some experience in writing in response to a workshop setting and you’ve got until 6 July to send in your CV, a cover letter and a sample of your writing.
