Write a play over the holidays
Want something constructive to do over the summer holidays? Why not put fingers to keyboard and write a play? The cornerHOUSE arts centre in Douglas Road, Surbiton, is asking people to create a oneACT for its festival of original writing.
Numerous subjects have been covered over the 11 years that the oneACTS festival has 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.
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 if it isn’t, you will still get feedback to help you with your future writing.
The deadline for submission of plays is Tuesday, October 31. After that, directors will be chosen, actors will be cast, and your work will come to life on stage at the oneACTS 2018 next April.
So, get your thinking caps on and start writing – those judges are looking forward to reading your play.
