As well as plays, 24:7 Festival are looking for monologues and a site specific piece, so this year performances can last between 5 – 90 minutes. Each play will be performed a number of times over that weekend, either as full productions or as works in progress. Some could also go into development for the 2016 Festival.
As in previous years, there will be a ‘blind’ adjudication process to ensure anonymity and impartiality, with written feedback given on every submission.
Each successful writer will become a producer of their play and this year 24:7 will act as co-producer, assisting in an even greater way to ensure each play gets the very best director, cast, technical support and marketing. We will also offer mentoring and dramaturgical support to your writing. And we may help your work have a life after the Festival, assisting with touring packs, funding bids and venue contacts.
Please note, 24:7 are NOT looking for plays that come with a production company attached. They want writers who are looking for ongoing development and who are open to new exciting collaborations with other creative people. 24:7 also expect that writers won’t direct or appear in their own work this year, as there will be enough to do on the writing/producing side! So don’t be shy, get in there and have a go. Full details are here~ share
