The Rose Unfolds Project links the past, the present and the future. As the first playhouse on Bankside, The Rose was the catalyst for Southwark to become the home of Elizabethan drama. Shakespeare, Marlowe and many of their contemporaries started careers at The Playhouse. The Rose Unfolds Project will continue this work, providing a platform for emerging artists and creating a forum to explore current theatre and arts practice. The project will provide a springboard for new artists and new work whilst also giving context to the classical texts it stages.
The Rose Unfolds ‘Scratch’ events will take place on Sundays on a monthly basis. The Scratch evenings are underpinned by the idea of feedback and audience response. They will be casual, discussive events where work, whether polished or raw, can be shown, discussed and further developed.
The next scratch night will take place on 8 November 2015.
What to submit: Submissions should be 15 to 20 minutes maximum. We will consider all genres of work, whether it’s the beginnings of a script or a piece already in development. The work can be new writing, a classic or anything that unfolds in between.
How to apply: Please send your ideas and submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: 16 October 2015
(Selected writers will be notified by 23 October 2015)
