The Director’s Club from Director’s Cut Theatre are looking for short scripts for ‘Home’ showcase

The Director’s Club from Director’s Cut Theatre are looking for short scripts for The Director’s Club Showcase; ‘Home’ which will take place at Southwark Playhouse, 7pm on Sunday 7 April 2019.

Home… Have you found it? Has it found you?..

What is home? Is it a place? A building? A person? A community? A feeling?

Ever felt familiar in the unfamiliar? Or unfamiliar in the familiar…?

How many of us are searching for home?

Are you?

Are we all?

What they are looking for:

  • Stories that explore the theme and idea of home, and what home is and means to the characters. Have they found it? Are they searching for it?
  • 5-7 minute monologues, duologues or short plays for up to 5 characters
  • They are interested in stories where characters are exploring and exposing personal questions, ideas and life circumstances, so that this play ‘Home’ reflects a diverse range of stories and voices on what home is. What journey are the characters on and how will our audience be challenged and moved by their story?
  • They encourage writers to think outside of the box and to think about our current political and social climate.
  • As a company they are drawn to theatre and stories that move audiences, evoke emotion, be that through laughter or tears…
  • They are looking for a range of comedy and drama.
  • They also do love a good twist (but this is not essential).

How to apply: scripts will be read as they are sent in. Please send scripts in PDF format to
