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 Soho Theatre 2020 Verity Bargate Award – Submissions now open
Description: The search is on. Soho Theatre and Character 7, producer of The Night Manager, are looking for extraordinary plays from extraordinary new voices. The Verity Bargate Award is Soho Theatre’s flagship new-writing award with the winning play produced in a full production on their stages.
What’s so great about it? This is is one of the big names in terms of playwriting competitions so we wanted to make sure you knew the submission window is now open! The winner receives £7,500 in respect of an exclusive option for Soho Theatre to produce the play so if you’ve got an unpublished, unproduced play that is at least 60 minutes in length, then what are you waiting for? You’ve got until 10 January to get your scripts in so still plenty of time for polishing!
