Organised by the Isle of Man Arts Council and the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) the competition is the inaugural initiative of TheatreFest15, the five-year project to promote new work for the theatre launched in May in the Isle of Man.
What to submit: To enter, writers are asked to submit a one-act play themed on the subject of slavery. The winner of the TheatreFest New Work Award will see their play produced in 2016 for one night at the Talisman Theatre in Kenilworth, Warwickshire and be staged at the Gaiety Theatre, Douglas in the Isle of Man as part of that year’s TheatreFest programme.
The launch of the TheatreFest New Work Award coincides with the project’s website, theatrefest15.com, going live.
Deadline: 4 September 2015
