ARE YOU TALKING TO ME? - new short play contest open for entries


Our latest short play competition for Members is now open for entries.


The theme for this contest is ARE YOU TALKING TO ME?


The deadline for entries is Monday 13th June


The contest will be held VIA ZOOM on Monday 27th June


Please make sure your entry complies with the rules: Entries from PP members only, to be emailed to competitions secretary, Giles Armstrong, at gkarmstrong@ukhome.net by Monday 13th June at the latest.

Reading time for each entry must not exceed ten minutes or fall short of five, to avoid disqualification. Scripts to include two to four characters (of either sex) with a list of their names. The author's name must not appear. Authors may suggest casting, but the final choice will be absolutely at the discretion of the casting secretary.

Authors may have ONE read-through with the cast, and give the cast brief notes. Authors are responsible for arranging this.

The cast are asked not to reveal the names of authors, so that as far as possible these are not known.

Only the first ten entries to be received will be accepted for the competition but we may be able to arrange readings of surplus scripts on another occasion.

The script submitted to Giles will be the final one. No amendment of scripts will be permitted. Authors are not permitted to vote for their own entry.
