NOTE: We welcome submissions from anybody, but do keep in mind the plays will be performed in London, by British actors, and we're unlikely to choose plays where they would have to put on American accents.
Heavy Weather are now accepting submissions for the second edition of our new writing night LOVER, as part of the Black Box Festival at the Etcetera Theatre in January. We are looking for 4 plays, and one piece of spoken word.

Your play should be ten minutes long, with minimal tech requirements, and with a same-sex relationship at its core. We’re looking for exciting, dynamic writing that would work well in the Etcetera Theatre’s black box space.

A cast of up to four actors - 2 male, 2 female - will perform all the plays, so please bear this in mind when writing (your play can use as many or as few of these actors as you’d like).

SPOKEN WORD ARTISTS: we are looking for a short (5 minute) piece of spoken word. Please submit both the poem itself, and some footage of a previous performance so we can get a sense of your style. Spoken word artists can either hand over their piece to an actor or perform their own work.

We want to see on stage the diversity of relationships that exist in our lives. We want same-sex relationships to be explored in theatre in as much complexity and depth as heterosexual relationships. Last year, LOVER (Park Theatre) sold out and received 4 and 5 star reviews, and we hope to make this event even more successful.

Please submit your play to heavyweathertheatre@gmail.com by Monday 22nd December.
