Write Now - Brockley Jack seeks unpublished plays by local writers

Via the British Theatre Guide:

The Brockley Jack Theatre has launched a new play season aimed at promoting and celebrating the creative talent of southeast Londoners.

Write Now is inviting scriptwriters and theatre companies with a strong connection to southeast London to submit a new play to the theatre for consideration.

Three plays will then be selected to be performed during the Write Now season in Febriary, 2010.

The season is also an opportunity for writers to meet other writers and theatre professionals, and an opportunity for new work to be performed in a professional theatre by experienced industry people.

Playwright Lin Coghlan (Eastenders, The National Theatre, Soho Theatre) and award winning producer Simon James Collier, of the Okai Collier Theatre Company, will help select plays for performance.

The plays submitted must be the writers' original work, unpublished and unperformed at a public theatre. Adaptations/translations will not be considered.

The guidelines and application form are available to be downloaded from the Brockley Jack website.

The Deadline for Applications is Friday, 16th October.
