Open for entries: Short play contest for Members - Scare Us Stupid

Your mission is to write a scary play of 10 minutes duration

Submissions for the SCARE US STUPID! competition, which is to be run via Zoom on Monday 27th November must be received by Monday 13th November. The zoom link for the evening will be sent nearer the time. Meanwhile, a reminder of the rules: Entries from PP members only, to be emailed to competitions secretary, Giles Armstrong, at by Monday 13th 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 at the discretion of casting secretary, Lynne O'Sullivan.

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 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. Score sheets will be emailed prior to the competition and must be returned to Lynne by Thursday 30th November. Authors are not permitted to vote for their own entry.
