Threadbare Theatre is launching its playwriting competition and is looking for a play set in a pub.
Threadbare says: “We love working on new writing and on plays that fit our space perfectly.
“We are now launching a playwriting competition to find a brand new play that we will stage in the upstairs bar of The Crown Inn, Oxted.
“We are accepting scripts for production in our Autumn 2017/2018 season on the theme “The local”.
“The play will be performed in the upstairs bar of the pub and so must not have a large, complicated set (other than the bar itself which can be used within the performance).”
Eligibility: The competition is open to anyone.
What to submit:
- Scripts from 30 mins–2 hours. Threadbare says if they find 2 good shorter plays they will combine them into one evening’s entertainment
- A brief synopsis
- A short insight into your inspiration. Where did your idea come from?
- At least one scene (we will accept full or partially complete scripts)
- Character/Casting breakdown – Maximum 3 actors
How to apply: please email scripts to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: 16 June 2017
