It’s been the summer in which everything was cancelled. Were your festival dreams scuppered? Has the live show you’ve spent all year devising lost its stage? Have you been stuck performing your one-woman play in your living room to your flatmates, knowing the rest of the world has to see it?
UK TV and theatre have always been interconnected, and now more than ever, in the absence of traditional live opportunities, it is vital that we offer other platforms to showcase your work and stories.
If you’ve always thought your voice could find a home on screen, this might be the thing for you.
- This is an initiative for emerging voices, and therefore they are only considering applicants who have not already had an original project produced for television, film or streaming service.
- They are excited to offer an opportunity here that aims specifically to preserve the spirit of live performance, and offer a platform to writer-performers who have been uniquely challenged by the cancellations of the summer and beyond. Brilliant emerging writers who don’t perform their work should check out our other opportunities such as Sister’s Writer in Residence Scheme and South of the River’s soon to be announced ‘South Rising’ screenwriters workshop
- Applicants must be over 18, and UK nationals or have ‘right to reside’ status in the UK; please see here for further information.
Applications are open from 12.01am on Thursday 1st October – 11.59pm on Sunday 11th October.
