Here at BBC Writersroom are asking for original short-form scripts, between 5-10 minutes in length whose 2-4 characters now find themselves in isolation, but connecting via video conferencing. They may be friends, lovers, neighbours, colleagues, family or strangers. But they’re all alone together and using modern technology to stay connected.
They want stories that take place throughout and via a conference call. Stories that show a moment of human interaction in an otherwise socially distanced world. Though of course, when it feels like the end of the world, the things we choose to say or the truths we reveal to one another may be the most surprising.
They will select four of the best to be produced with professional actors and released on BBC platforms throughout April. The selected writers will each receive £300 for their script.
Deadline: Monday 30th March at 12 noon
