WRITER CALL OUT – ASTOR 100
WE WANT YOUR SCRIPTS!
Down Stage Write are looking for Devon and Cornwall based writers to submit scripts for their latest short play production.
Down Stage Night: Astor 100 is an evening of four new short plays written in response to the one hundred year anniversary of Nancy Astor becoming the first sitting female member of Parliament.
These brand new pieces will be directed and performed by professionals from the region.
It will be performed at The Lab, Theatre Royal Plymouth on April the 12th and at Exeter Phoenix on May the 12th.
We are asking writers to create a short play on the theme.
You must be a writer based in Devon or Cornwall.
The plays must be:
*Written in response to Astor 100
*10-20 minutes long (as a guide 1 page = 1.5 minutes)
*Written for the stage
*For one or two actors
*In a recognised theatre script format
*A complete short play NOT an extract
*Please only one submission per writer
THE DEADLINE FOR ALL SUBMISSIONS IS:
THURSDAY 28th FEBRUARY 2019
We are asking writers to submit a play. These will be read and shortlisted by our artistic and Directors team. Each writer will receive a short paragraph of feedback.
The final selected writers will get to develop the script with the support of our team before going into rehearsal for the performances and be paid a commission fee of £150 each.
The project is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
