‘Glass Splinters’ is returning for their third event of new writing on the 4th of November in the new Downstairs Space at The Pleasance Theatre in Islington, and are seeking submissions from female (or female identifying, including non-binary and transwomen) writers for pieces inspired by women from history. They can be famous, revolutionary or someone you find interesting or inspirational, like a member of your family.
What they are looking for: ideally, monologues of no more than 10 minutes in length, but they will consider pieces with up to 4 actors, with minimal props and set.
BAME and LGBTQIA writers are especially encouraged to submit, as are actors who have self-written pieces. Please note that their deadline for submissions is midnight on the 5th of October and this is currently an unpaid opportunity, which they are working to change in the future.
How to apply: to submit a piece or if you have any questions, please feel free to message me on here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: 5 October 2019
