Phoebus Fire call for scripts

web site

We are currently inviting submissions for a performance project to take place in November 2019. We would like to feature new writing and are interested in finding a play (or two shorter plays) on the theme of women's empowerment.

The show will be performed in up to ten theatres around East Kent (UK), and all profits from the tour will be donated to a local charity which supports women. This is an opportunity for a writer to help contribute to a worthy cause, and to develop a piece of writing that they can later use elsewhere. This is not a paid opportunity. All cast and crew will be donating their time to the project.

The brief is as follows:
  • The script must be in English
  • Playing time must be at least thirty minutes and not more than ninety minutes.
  • Maximum of four actors
  • No upper age limit
  • Lower age limit - playing age none, actual age 18
  • No multimedia
  • Simple set (no fixed constructions)
  • We are actively seeking something that is experimental and / or experiential. We are happy to work closely with the selected writer(s) to develop the piece further if needed.

Closing date for submissions: midnight on 30th September 2018.

How to submit:

  • Please send an email to: info@phoebusfire.co.uk
  • In the subject line of the email, put RSProject
  • In the body of the email, please give us your name, contact details, the title of the play, and the approximate running time.
  • Attach the script (preferably as a .pdf).

Formatting the script:

Front page should contain the title of play, approx. running time, and character list.

We don't mind which formatting convention you follow for the body of the play as long as it is clear whether we are looking at a character name, a stage direction, or dialogue, and your formatting remains consistent throughout the script.

Do not include your name or other identifying information anywhere on the script.
