Heavy Weather are now accepting submissions for the second edition of their new writing night LOVER, as part of the Black Box Festival at the Etcetera Theatre in January. They are looking for 4 plays, and one piece of spoken word. Your play should be ten minutes long, with minimal tech requirements, and with a same-sex relationship at its core. We’re looking for exciting, dynamic writing that would work well in the Etcetera Theatre’s black box space. A cast of up to four actors – 2 male, 2 female – will perform all the plays, so please bare this in mind when writing (your play can use as many or as few of these actors as you’d like).
SPOKEN WORD ARTISTS: they are looking for a short (5 minute) piece of spoken word. Please submit both the poem itself, and some footage of a previous performance so they can get a sense of your style. Spoken word artists can either hand over their piece to an actor or perform their own work. Heavy Weather want to see on stage the diversity of relationships that exist in our lives. They want same-sex relationships to be explored in theatre in as much complexity and depth as heterosexual relationships. Last year, LOVER (Park Theatre) sold out and received 4 and 5 star reviews.
How to submit: send your play to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: Monday 22nd December 2014
