Persistent & Nasty- Call for submissions

Persistent and Nasty are inviting script submissions from women, trans-women and non-binary individuals. The prompt for writers this time around is fairly broad; they are looking for scripts that explore / respond to the phrase hope for the future. Writers are invited to interpret this however they wish.

Criteria

  • 15-30 minutes in length (approximately 20-30 pages).
  • The script can be written for theatre, film, TV or radio.
  • Priority will be given to scripts that explore themes of gender equality, diversity and representation.
  • Priority will be given to scripts that have more than one female character.
  • Casting will be age, ethnicity and disability blind (unless clearly justified within the narrative)
  • If the submitted script is an excerpt from a longer piece, the excerpt should be able to stand alone and be understood.
  • Please use as close to industry standard formatting as possible. Minimum requirement is 12pt font size, double line spacing and page numbers.
  • Alongside the script itself, please provide the following:
    • a brief synopsis
    • character descriptions
    • a few words on what inspired you to write this particular piece
    • a short biography

Event format 

The format of the evening is in two parts. First there’ll be a rehearsed reading of a piece of writing for theatre or film by a female-identified writer.

This will be followed by an open forum discussion with an invited industry guest, addressing any issues the work points to and that affect women on a cross-industry level. Audience members will be encouraged to take place in this debate.

Their goal is to create an event that is safe and supportive, but that is also an act of protest. The event will be recorded for an accompanying podcast that will serve as documentation of our thoughts, ideas and grievances.
