Script Sessions Spring Writing Competition – call for submissions

The Script Sessions is looking for four original 15-minute stage plays, each taking inspiration from the following quotation:
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” (George Santayana – Life of Reason)
Each play must be written with multiple timescales – stories from different time periods, cultures, worlds, places and spaces that are told in parallel. You may have as many characters as you like but only four actors are allocated per company. Successful writers will attend a Script Sessions development workshop and will then have a week to re‐write and develop the work before it is handed over to the director and actors. Each play will be rehearsed and performed by professional actors who will perform off book with two three-hour rehearsals to take the script from page to stage. The scripts will be performed at the Courtyard Theatre, Hoxton on 29 March at 8pm. The audience will vote for the winning script.
All writers must be available for the following dates:
Script development: 7-10pm, 27 and 28 February
Rehearsals: weeks beginning 11 and 18 March (tbc)

£50 prize
Please send entries (and a contact telephone number) to: thescriptsessions@gmail.com
