PLAYWRIGHT SUBMISSIONS WANTED!
For Symposium Season 1
‘Symposium Season 1’ is a new production from Symposium Productions for the 2018 Adelaide Fringe involving several collaborative writers. The production will run for approximately 60 minutes and include 6-8 scenes (depending on number and length of submissions).
Each scene will be written by a different playwright, with only 1 (or 2 depending on number of submissions) being written by the show’s producer/director/script editor James Watson.
Scenes can be about anything, there isn’t any set style, topic or theme. The production should be viewed more as a collaborative selection of individual scenes rather than one single play.
Scenes must be no longer than 10 minutes when performed, and must include no more than 3 actors (monologues accepted). The set will remain consistent between scenes; featuring nothing but a couch in the centre of a small stage. There’s no limit on props, lighting, sound, makeup or costumes within each scene.
What submissions will need to include:
- Your scene
- A short statement explaining the motivation, inspiration and intention behind the scene (400 words max)
- Any directorial suggestions you may have, if your scene is a monologue perhaps include a suggestion of which actor could suit the role (100 words max)
- Contact details (Mobile and email) and a short bio of your previous theatre experience.
Please email your submissions or any questions to James Watson at email@example.com
The deadline for submissions will be Friday the 31st of March 2017
