The Questors Theatre is planning a themed evening of short plays, looking at the darker side of social media. Selected entries will receive a staged reading during their coming season.
Love it or loathe it, social media is part of modern life. Friendships are formed and played out in cyberspace. The internet brings us together…and sometimes tears us apart. Points are made, grudges are pursued, scores are settled. All online.
It’s a medium perfect for revenge.
This is a call for short scripts – nothing longer than 15 minutes please – that explore the possibilities for revenge online.
“The Questors is one of the largest community theatres in Europe. Situated in Ealing, West London, we perform around 20 plays each year in our Playhouse and Studio, as well as hosting a full programme of guest productions, music and platform events. With our own theatre complex, rehearsal space, workshop and professional-standard technical facilities, we offer opportunities for excellence in all areas of theatre production and design. As well as exploring the mainstream of modern and classical world drama, The Questors has always been respected for championing new or rarely performed plays, and for encouraging experimentation.”
