Every year, Tamasha Theatre Company has been asking you to send them new short scripts, on any subject, with those selected few being scratched in front of a live audience. But a certain virus that shall not be named has pooped all over that, so Plan B: they’ve adapted and taken it all online.
As we’ve all spent a lot of time in our respective homes this year, Tamasha thought, why not get creative and set HOME as the theme. This doesn’t have to be too on-the-nose – they’re looking for a wide range of creative responses. So whether you’ve got a piece about what home has meant to you during the last few months, or if home is another country, a smell, a memory, a person – it’s completely up to you.
All genres are welcome.
- Script extracts should be no more than 15 minutes in performance (roughly 10 pages)
- Pieces must be for a maximum of four actors (doubling possible)
- They’re looking for play ideas for which there is a good reason for Tamasha to produce now, in the UK
- Scenes from longer scripts are welcome
Tamasha positively encourages artists from Black, Asian, MENA, and all ethnic minority backgrounds to apply.
As a touring company, they are also particularly keen in ideas set with universal, non-London centric themes.
Send your short piece to Samia@tamasha.org.uk by 6pm on Monday 17 August. Submissions sent beyond the deadline date will not be accepted.
The Virtual Scratch Night will take place on 21 September.
