COME TO WHERE I AM – a series of short plays about the places we call home
Theatre by the Lake and new writing theatre company Paines Plough are looking to commission 4 new short 10 minute plays to be written and performed by writers about the Cumbria.
If you consider Cumbria to be your home then they want to hear from you! They are offering £250 each per commission.
- The short plays will be written and performed by the writers and will be about the place they call home.
- This should be a play inspired by your own experience or perception of the place you call home but can be fictionalised and does not have to be a true story.
- All plays will be given script development support.
- They will then be asking writers to film themselves at home performing their own play (theu will offer advice on how best to capture these too on your own devices) and these will be edited and shared online. W
- They will then work towards doing live performances of these at Theatre by the Lake when they open again.
This is a spin-off series of an existing project run by Paines Plough called COME TO WHERE I’M FROM – to check out over 160 existing short plays already commissioned by the company over the past 10 years you can visit the website and download the app here- https://painesplough.com/project/come-where-im
