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 Director’s Club seeking shorts on theme of ‘Santa’s Secret…’
Description: The Director’s Club from Director’s Cut Theatre are looking for writers to respond to their latest brief ‘Santa’s Secret…’ which will be performed on Monday 17th December at Southwark Playhouse. They are looking for 5-7 minute monologues, duologues or short plays for up to 4 characters based on the theme of secrets being kept/hidden at Christmas.
What’s so great about it? Well it is November so that definitely means its’ ok to talk about Christmas, right? And if you feel like bringing a bit of Christmas cheer in to your writing, this opportunity is perfect for you. Feeling more Bah Humbug than Jingle Bells? That’s ok, as they are open to all types of stories – dark or funny – as long as your work responds to the brief of secrets being kept at Christmas!
Selected scripts get their work performed at the wonderful Southwark Playhouse so not only is this opportunity a lot of fun, it’s also a great way to get your work up on a London stage and work with a professional company. You’ve got until 22 November to submit, so get going. Now, who said its’ too early for a mince pie…
