Play Writing Competition

If you’re lost for something to do while stuck indoors, why not try your hand at script writing? We would love to hear from you!

We are calling all budding script writers, or anyone who enjoys a bit of creative writing, to send us either a full length play (approx 90 mins), a one-act play (20-40 mins) or a monologue to enter our competition.

If we really like your play and can cast it, we may perform it in the future in the Adrian Mann Theatre or as part of our summer one-acts productions (with your permission of course).

At a time when drama and theatre has shut down, we would like to encourage everyone to explore their creativity and have a go, even if you have not done anything like this before – so to help you get started we have found some useful resources on the internet!

The play can be any length, any genre and about any subject that takes your fancy.

We are here to help. If you have any queries or writing dilemmas, please do not hesitate to contact Harriet.
