Optik and director Barry Edwards are running a new theatre writing event at the 2017 Richmond upon Thames Festival.
They plan to feature three to four unperformed original scripts in a fully rehearsed staged reading with professional cast.
In their own words: “The setting will be formally theatrical but intimate and the audience likely to be astute but supportive. We want this to be both an entertaining event for the public and an informative and developmental experience for the writers.”
They are now asking for writers who would like to participate in this event to get in touch and send a script. The event takes place in March 2017 and they want to finalise the programme by the end of January.
Please note that scripts may be considered as they are received.
Deadline: 16 December 2016 [CLOSED EARLY DUE TO HIGH VOLUME OF SUBMISSIONS]
