Playwrights' Competition Calendar


A River Runs Through it.

This is what we have renamed our tent following days and nights of rain. Also worth noting that it’s best not to write a horror play about a couple sleeping in a tent the week before you go camping.

The Jack Studio Theatre in London are looking for 10 minute plays on the subject of Britishness by September 5th for performance on October 7th.

This autumn, The Royal Exchange Theatre and Bruntwood Prize-winning playwrights will be hitting the road with a series of workshops to help you put pen to paper, create stories on stage, bring your ideas and imagination to life. The free Bristol Old Vic workshop  on the 6th October will be led by writer, director and lecturer Duncan Macmillan. – Sorry guys, I was just pasting this in but have now seen the event’s already sold out, although they are taking names in case people drop out. I can’t find a sensible list anywhere of where they’re going but they seem to be at the Manchester Royal Exchange on the 20th October, Clwyd Theatre on 16th November, Birmingham Rep on October 13th and Live Theatre, Newcastle on November 24th. I’ll let you know if I find out about any more.

If you’re aged between 16 and thirty you can try for Ideastap’s  The 24 hour plays: Old Vic New Voices 2012. “For the seventh year running The Old Vic has partnered with the extraordinary 24 Hour Play Company and IdeasTap, to discover the next generation of stars to take part in the ultimate theatrical challenge – to create six brand new plays in just 24 hours.” You need to sign up with Ideastap to see all the details and I haven’t got time now because sister is arriving at bus stop any minute now.
