CALLING FOOTBALL FANS WHO WANT TO WRITE – Monkeywood Theatre want your football stories

What does football mean to you?

Monkeywood Theatre return to The Lowry in September 2015 with BY FAR THE GREATEST TEAM, a brand new show exploring and celebrating football fandom in Manchester.

Alongside the production, we are seeking 5-minute plays from Manchester United and Manchester City fans about what it is to be a football fan.

We’ll select 10 of these plays to make up TEN TINY PLAYS ABOUT FOOTBALL, which will be performed script-in-hand by professional actors at The Lowry in September alongside the main production of BY FAR THE GREATEST TEAM. 

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never written before – all you need is to be a Manchester football fan with a story to tell.  Your play can take any form you wish (dialogue, monologue, even silent!) as long as it runs at approximately 5 minutes (think 5 pages of evenly spaced dialogue as an approximate guide).

There is no fee for entry and this is an unpaid opportunity.  Please send your finished plays to by 27th July 2015.

Successful writers will be notified by 17th August.

Monkeywood Theatre are a Manchester theatre company making and touring innovative, accessible and high quality new plays. We make plays that are rooted in our Mancunian community and increasingly we work collaboratively with artists and audiences to make our work. A key focus of our work is in attracting, engaging and retaining audiences who do not usually attend theatre. We’re Associate Artists of The Lowry and 4 times Manchester Theatre Award nominees.
