Entries open for member short play contest: A QUESTION OF BALANCE

Updated: Jan 11, 2023

Time to get to work on your entry in Player Playwright's Autumn short play contest.

You piece should somehow relate to our latest theme: A Question of Balance. How you interpret that is entirely up to you.

The competition is open to all Members. The competition will take place on Zoom on Monday 14 November.

The rules are as follows:

Entries from PP members only, to be emailed to competitions secretary, Giles Armstrong, at by Monday 31st October 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 on script.

Authors may suggest casting, but the final choice will be absolutely at the discretion of casting secretary, Jo Richards.

Authors may have ONE read-through with the cast, and give brief notes. Authors are responsible for arranging this themselves via their own Zoom facility.

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.
