GRIT at the Royal Court

web site

GRIT is an open call to writers of all ages and experiences to submit a play about everyday resistance, revolution and defiance.

The plays should fit roughly within the size of your palm. They can be created in any medium - words, videos, images or audio. Be creative - think about the moments of rebellion that go unnoticed and the voices of dissent which can't be heard.

We’ll populate the building with your moments of resistance over the submission period. So keep your eyes peeled and your spirit strong, ready to pin down tiny acts of defiance.

Plays can be submitted to the Royal Court anytime between 8 Dec – 10 April 2015

Send your play to grit@royalcourttheatre.com grit@royalcourttheatre.com
Subject: “Everyday Acts of Resistance”

Post your plays to: GRIT, Royal Court Theatre, Sloane Square, London, SW1W 8AS

Hard copies of plays can be deposited in the ‘GRIT drop boxes’ located in the CafĂ© Bar and Box Office at the Royal Court Theatre1) Your play can be entirely invented or discovered and reframed.

1) Your play can be entirely invented or discovered and reframed.

2) The form your submission takes is your choice but it must fit in the palm of your hand, or its equivalent e.g. on the screen of your phone, written on your palm, a speaker in your hand or an image on a postcard. Beyond this, be creative.

3) The play must be a play - and by that we mean it must contain actual or potential drama. How you interpret this is up to you.

4) We would respectfully request that you do not put yourself or anyone else in danger as part of this project.

Submissions will be selected by a group of readers – we won’t be able to display every piece of GRIT but keep an eye out and you may well spot yours. We will also upload all valid submissions to this tumblr.
