Teatru Manoel Education Programme seeks one-act plays

Facebook Page

Happy New Year one and all. We are looking for four new short plays to perform for the first time here in Malta.

Are you a writer with a play you want to see realised?

Want your work performed on an international platform?

Toi Toi, Teatru Manoel’s Education Programme are looking for four new, previously unperformed one act plays which will come together under the umbrella title Breaking the Rules

Submissions are open and playwrights are invited to interpret the umbrella title in any way they wish as Toi Toi develop a brand new platform created to showcase emerging and established theatrical talent both at home and abroad.

See your work staged by passionate up and coming professional theatre-makers, all of whom have worked with the Teatru Manoel Main Stage Crew, mounting theatre productions in one of Europe’s oldest working theatres.


Pieces can be of any genre: comedy, drama, contemporary, period, but must take the form of a theatrical script with dialogue.

Across the four pieces we are looking at casting around twenty young performers
Characters within the piece can be of any gender but must be aged 15 – 30 years

Pieces must be complete as we will not be offering a writers-workshop or re-write period.

Pieces must be between 20 - 25 minutes long.

Keep things technically minimal but feel free to set the piece in any period.

Deadline for submissions: Friday 01 February 2019

The successful submissions will be staged in June 2019 in the Teatru Manoel Studio Theatre.

Submissions in Word Doc format only to Ian Moore (TMYT Director) at ianmoore@live.co.uk
