Actor Awareness and Adam Morley are releasing a bursary where a writer can win £1000 for new writing.
Here are the details as quoted on the Actor Awareness website.
● We are looking for a plethora of new writing part of The Adam Morley and Actor Awareness bursary. The shows can be about anything and written by anyone. The only rules are it has to be new writing ( the piece cannot have been shown in a theatre already, however scratch nights are accepted) you can not attach a CV as we are running it as a blind casting, so just your name, a short synopsis and your new writing submission. The peice can be no more than 15 minutes long and has to be submitted by the deadline on the 30th of September. Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org
● After the deadline for submissions close we organise a day where we get a neutral actor, writer and director to sit on a small panel and listen to a small group of actors read each 15 min piece to us and we whittle it down to a final 20.
● Once the final 15-20 has been chosen we bring each play in for an audition day at a theatre. The writer will cast, direct and prepare their show, ready to perform their 15 min piece to a panel and choose a final 6 shows.
● Once the final 6 is chosen, we bring them into a scratch night performance, where the chosen casts perform in front of an invited diverse audience, who vote for winner to win the 1k to be turned into a full length show with award winning producer and director Adam Morley and a run in a theatre.

Deadline: 30 September 2016
