Have you ever written a short play that deserves to be performed – or have you always wanted to?
If so, the cornerHOUSE one act plays festival needs you.
The arts centre in Douglas Road, Surbiton, is asking people to create a play for the oneACTS 2016, its week-long showcase of original writing which will take place from Monday, May 9 until Saturday, May 14 2016.
Numerous subjects have been covered over the 11 years that the festivalhas been running, including plays on Elvis, a mouse hunt, a sudoku addict, the antics of a group of clowns, internet dating, a fun run, and a time-travelling Ofsted inspector.
Don’t worry if you haven’t attempted anything like this before. You can find all the information you need on its website at www.thech.org or email oneacts@thecornerhouse.
Jon Constant, chairman of the festival which has become a well established and highly respected event in the local arts scene, said:
“The plays need to be short – 15 to 30 minutes long – so if you have an original idea and would like to see it staged, why not have a go?
A number of plays will be selected by a panel of judges out of all those received and yours may well be the lucky one. Even it isn’t, you will still get feedback to help you with your future writing.”
The deadline for submission of plays is Saturday, October 31 2015. After that, directors will be chosen, actors will be cast, and your work will come to life on stage.
Guidance notes on how to submit your plays can be found on the cornerHOUSE website.
So, get your thinking caps on, put fingers to keyboard, and start writing – those judges are looking forward to reading your play. Please email your play to firstname.lastname@example.org
