On Friday 22 February 2019, Breakwater Theatre Company will be holding a night of new writing for the stage in the Albert Room at Cleethorpes Library, entitled “Rough Cuts and Scratches”, in conjunction with Lincs Inspire.
The evening will feature six new, short plays and will have a competitive edge as the audience will vote for the best play of the night. The winner and runner up will both receive a commission to develop the play into a 40-minute piece of theatre to be staged in October 2019 and will each receive a £300 fee.
The winning writers will be mentored by nationally renowned theatre company New Perspectives as they develop the script for performance by Breakwater Theatre Company.
Who can apply:
Writers can be at any stage of their writing career and of any age but must not have been a member of either Breakwater Theatre Company or New Perspectives.
Although the contest is open to all, preference may be given to writers living in Lincolnshire.
The play can be on any theme but must feature no more than four actors, should be easy to stage and not require a wide range of props, sets or sound/lighting effects. Monologues are also eligible. The play must not exceed 15 minutes in duration.
Writers who wish to be considered for entry to this contest should submit their script in word or pdf format to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Saturday December 15th 2018.
