After the success of their first instalment of their new-writing event ‘Universal’, Unshaded Arts will be returning to Omnibus Theatre for their second showing at Omnibus Theatre on Friday 7th July 2023 and are seeking submissions from writers.
They are looking for short plays that pertain to the following guidelines:
- Universal stories with marginalised characters at the centre. There is no specific theme, but the subject matter and content of each piece should be universally relatable;
- 10-15 minutes in length;
- Feature 2-4 characters (no monologues/solo pieces);
- Simple staging requirements i.e. flexible for any set and minimal costume / props.
Please submit scripts as a PDF document. They are particularly keen to showcase the work of marginalised writers by way of race, disability, sexuality, gender etc, but welcome submissions from all UK based writers. As of right now this is an unpaid opportunity but, should we secure any funding, we will seek to remunerate all participants.
Please email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org

Deadline: Midday on Monday 13th March 2023
