Papatango Theatre Company is now accepting submissions for its 2013 new writing award.
What they are looking for: “We look favourably on plays that say something about the contemporary world or the way we live now, and which have a distinct theatrical language that makes them beautiful and unforgettable on stage. We are not in general keen on plays about people trying to put on a play, plays drawn from literary biographies, or plays which are heavily rooted in documented historical events…. Musicals, adaptations and children’s plays are not eligible.”
Since the play will be performed at the Finborough, they recommend reading the Finborough’s Literary Policy (found here) for guidance. But please note that applications must be made through Papatango and not the Finborough.
What to submit: A full length play with a minimum running time of 90 minutes that has not previously been produced.
How to apply: Email your script to email@example.com. Please note that your script should not have a name or pseudonym anywhere on the document. A phone number should be the only contact information provided on the script itself. Only one entry is allowed per person. Full details about entering can be found here.
What you get: The winning play will be produced by Papatango and performed at the Finborough Theatre in November 2013. The writer will receive 10% royalties of the gross box office.
Deadline: Friday 31 May 2013 at midnight
