Play Club

Following the success of last year’s inaugural Play Club, we’re bringing the project back for 2020 with 4 of the most exciting plays of the last 10 years, as well as another rehearsed reading event at the end of the year!

Every other month, starting in March, we’ll be setting a play for everyone to read. From this, we challenge you to write a 10 page short play inspired by what you’ve read.

After each submission window, we’ll then select a winner from that round of submissions who can look forward to having their play read by actors at the Old Red Lion at the final members meet-up of 2020!

As always, if you aren’t selected the first time round – never fear! As we’ll be reading 4 plays this year, which means you’ve got 4 chances to get your shiny new short play selected.

The first play will be announced on Monday 16 March, with the submission window opening a few weeks after that. Anyone is more than welcome to read along with us, but to submit your inspired short play you must be a LPW member. Check below for details about how to become one…

Details of the current Play Club are listed below, but don’t worry if you miss this as we’ll be sending out reminders to all members directly to your inbox.
