Putney Arts Theatre seeking plays on ‘Crime and Punishment’ (£20 fee to join club if selected)

The Putney Arts Theatre New Writing Team is looking for fully formed pieces of drama relating to the theme ‘Crime and Punishment’ for our new writing production in October 2015.

What to submit:  Plays can be any genre (comedy, love story, ghost story, social or historical drama, musical etc.) as long as they relate to the ‘Crime and Punishment’ theme. They should have a maximum running time of 20 minutes and a maximum cast size of 4 actors.
“We are looking for well told stories that grab our attention from the start and introduce us to interesting characters who develop over time. Humorous, poignant, frightening, challenging, intriguing: take them and us on a dramatic journey.”

Eligibility:  They welcome entries (one script only please) from new and experienced writers who are:

  • Members of Putney Theatre Company and Group64
  • Non-members living in the UK

If your play is selected you will need to be a fully paid up member of the Company or a member of Group64 to have your play performed. PTC membership costs £20 per year – Telephone 0208 788 6943 or email info@putneyartstheatre.org.uk for a membership form.

They may ask writers of shortlisted scripts to develop further their plays before making a final selection in June 2015.

How to Apply:  Please send your script as a word document with all pages numbered. Please don’t send scripts in PDF formats as we can’t always open them.

Entries will be judged anonymously so don’t include any identifying information on your script. Include in your email your name, address, email address, phone number, title of your script and confirmation that your script has not already been performed.

Send your scripts and cover sheet by email to ptcnewwriting@gmail.com.
