COG ARTSpace call out for playwrights!

COG ARTSpace is a new 50 – 60 seat flexible performance space on the border of Hackney and Islington (London, N1). They are one of the 4 London venues that are officially part of Equity’s new ‘Professionally Made – Professionally Paid’ initiative to ensure artists are paid fairly for the work they do.

To help visiting companies pay their artists (At least minimum wage), we forgo any fixed hire fees or costs for use of the venue. We split the box office, on a sliding scale IN FAVOUR of the visiting company. This means that not only does your company earn money from the beginning, but as the box office rises, so does your percentage.

They are looking for submissions for the following 2015 projects:

Live Readings

They are soon to launch a monthly Podcast called WORDS. WORDS. WORDS. This podcast will feature a piece of new writing (45mins – 1hr approx) read by professional actors in-front of a live audience. They then open the floor for a short discussion (We’d love the playwright to be present here if possible).

The reading and discussion will be recorded with professional broadcast equipment, and available online as a free-to-download podcast. The event is free, and the download is free! It’s about exposing your work, and most importantly providing a platform for development. If you’d like to have a script considered, please submit it to scripts@COGARTSpace.com with the Subject WORDS WORDS WORDS.

Financial Deal: This podcast is 100% Free for all involved, so no money will be made from any party. It’s a voluntary event.

In-house productions

COG ARTS CIC is looking to produce 1 – 2 shows a year, and they’d love to read your scripts. This year they are looking for solo shows, 2 handers and 3 character productions of approx 1hr – 1.5hrs running time.

Please submit your scripts to scripts@COGARTSpace.com with the Subject Line – IN-HOUSE

Financial Deal: If we select your script for production, we will usually negotiate a percentage deal for royaltys. On certain occasions we may be able to secure a flat fee / per performance fee. Please details if this is a specific requirement in your submission
