VI - Six rehearsed readings of new plays, to be produced by Accidental in 2011

In 2010, we worked with six emerging playwrights and a talented crew of actors to develop six new pieces of stage writing, bringing the plays to Belfast audiences as rehearsed readings. (Poke around on the website for details about last year's edition of VI, including photos and recordings of the performances at Blick Studios.)

Now we’re on the lookout for six more new voices, and looking forward to producing another series of six readings in the coming months: We want new (never-before performed) writing for the stage that’s definitely fearless, perhaps funny, and that would allow us to stretch our own – and an audience’s – creativity.

Submission guidelines:

  • Each play should be at most about 45 pages (no longer than an hour).
  • Send the play in .pdf format to by Friday 1st April 2011.
  • Include a brief biography of yourself in the body of the e-mail.
  • Multiple submissions are fine, if you’ve more than one piece that might be right for this series, but we’ll only accept one piece by any given author.

Any questions, give me a shout. Thanks.
