Rapid Write Response is a short play initiative to meet and engage with early-career creatives, by mounting six 10-minute response pieces to our current full length production. Over a 3 week period the plays are written, selected, cast, rehearsed and staged, all co-ordinated by one of Theatre503’s Trainee Assistant Producers and a Curator.
The short play initiative is open to all early-career writers. Come on down to the writers night (the first preview of every show) and enjoy a £6 ticket and a chance to meet the literary department and the writer of the show.
You are then invited to write a 10 minute minute short play in response to the production and submit it via Theatre503’s Script Portal by the following Monday. All submissions will be read by a panel of the 503 Team, and 6 selected writers will get the opportunity to see their work performed live on stage. All writers must be eligible under Theatre503’s Script and Programming Policy.
The play which you will be responding to is:
Writers Night – Tuesday 1st November & Wednesday 2nd November
£6 preview tickets available for Writers from Tuesday 1st – Saturday 5th November
Rapid Write Response script submission deadline – Monday 7th November, 9am
