Submissions are open for ’10 Minutes To… Call Home’ short play project

10 Minutes To… is a short play project where writers submit plays that respond to a specific theme. The current theme is Call Home. Writers can respond to this theme in any way they see fit. A selection of these plays are chosen to be produced.

Due to the Coronavirus the scheduled 10 Mins To… performance weekend in May will no longer be able to go ahead as planned. However, Live Theatre hope writers will still take part in this project and submit a script. They will still read all submitted scripts and are currently looking at alternative platforms such as audio performance for digital release.

Submission guidelines:

Plays must:

  • respond to the theme of 10 Minutes To…Call Home
  • be no longer than 10 minutes
  • have no more than four characters
  • be able to be performed with minimal staging and technical support
