Back for a seventh year, 28 Plays Later, a writing opportunity from The Literal Challenge – a social
enterprise that brings together a community of writers, wannabe writers and newbies through
creative challenges. Over the last six Februarys, 28 Plays Later has inspired the writing of 33,202
Some of those plays were never read again, others have gone onto great things, including
professional runs at theatres, readings, festivals, recordings and adaptation into films.
Every day, you’ll get a writing brief, then you’ll have 36 hours to write a play in response.
Plays can be of any length, genre and language.
How to take part: Registrations are now open through the website www.theliteralchallenge.com/28playslater and will
be open until 28 January.
There are two types of entry:
TIMED ENTRY – all plays must be submitted by the daily deadline, and for those who also
wish to contribute to the pot, as per the rules, the money will be distributed between all
those who didn’t miss a deadline (minus admin fees).
CREATIVE ENTRY – if you don’t fancy the stress of the deadlines, you can choose to join the
challenge and deliver as many submissions, whenever you like.
If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Many thanks and have a fantastic day,
Alex (The Literal Challenge)
