Carried Away – New writing competition

New writing needed!

Writers wanted for this year’s “Full Stack” competition, which will form an evening of short plays in July.

For the last 2 years we have run a new writing competition to gather short plays around a theme for a week-long run at the Lion and the Unicorn Theatre. Much fun was had by audience and actor alike, and it’s time to kick off this year’s event!

We are looking to choose 12 pieces around the theme “Carried Away”, that are no longer than 4 sides of A4 paper, and need no more than 3 actors. They say restriction breeds creativity…

So if you’re an experienced writer who wants to experiment with what can be achieved in a short duration, or a brand new creative that hasn’t-got-around-to-writing-but-will-do-because-it’s-a-new-year’s-resolution-honest…. This is your opportunity — we want to hear your words!

Please submit no more than one piece per person, the deadline for submissions is 10th March at 6pm, and we will let you know if you were successful in early April.

Questions, and submissions, to Vicky at
