Roundhouse is looking for five original radio plays to produce for its youth-led radio station, Roundhouse Radio. At least five short plays will be recorded by professional actors and broadcast on Roundhouse Radio. The judges of this brief are looking for original concepts that are relevant to Roundhouse Radio’s young audience.
What to submit: Roundhouse Radio is producing a new generation of radio talent. They’re looking for short plays – no more than 15 minutes long – which will appeal to their youth audience. Plays should contain no more than four characters.
What you get: Winning writers will each receive a £100 fee. They will also hear their original scripts brought to life by paid actors in a professional studio environment. Each winning play will be aired on Roundhouse Radio and playwrights will be given a recording of the finished product to use as a promotional tool afterwards. They will also receive a one-hour mentoring session with Alexandra Arlango, development producer at Cowboy Films.
