In addition, if chosen for the 20th January you’ll be automatically put in the mix for The Best of Theatre Exchange, a new writing showcase planned for Summer 2014.  One piece from the Theatre Absolute event will be selected along with pieces from our last event in November at The Old Joint Stock and our next one in April at Birmingham Rep

What to submit:  You will need to include:

  • your chosen extract which is no longer than 10 minutes (8-10 pages)
