Entries open for our next short play contest
Our next competition for members has as its theme ONE OF US IS LYING
It will be held at the North London Tavern on Monday 22nd November and now is the time to get your entries prepared. The rules are as follows: Entries to be emailed to competitions secretary, Giles Armstrong, at email@example.com by Monday 8th November 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.
