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 Originals Playwriting Award
Description: The Originals Playwriting Award is the UK’s latest national competition for playwriting. It is a search for compellingly well-told stories capable of entertaining a wide audience. They are looking for theatre scripts that have not yet been produced, by all UK-based writers who identify at being at the outset of their careers and would benefit from this platform.
Why is it so great? This fantastic new playwriting prize will award four plays with a cash prize and a script-in-hand performance live-streamed and recorded by North South in front of a live studio audience at London’s iconic theatre and television hub, Riverside Studios. The winning play will receive an enhanced cash prize and the potential of a full stage production by Original Theatre. If you want to apply, you’ve got until 9th May!
