Play Club

Following the success of the last 2 Play Clubs, we’re bringing the project back for 2021 with a twist! This year, we’ll be creating more of a community feel, and focussing on 3 of the plays from last year’s submission window for our Play Club community to respond to. 

We’ll have a Play Club meeting every other month where we’ll get to meet digitally, discuss the play in small groups, meet the writer and hopefully offer some inspiration! 

But what is Play Club exactly? 

Every other month, starting in March, we’ll be setting a play for everyone in the Play Club community to read. From this, we challenge you to write a 10 page short play inspired by what you’ve read. We’ll then select a group of winning plays from each round of submissions who can look forward to having their play read by actors at a (hopefully) in-person event at the end of 2021.

The first play will be announced on Monday 22 March, with the submission window opening and the meeting being held a few weeks after that. To join the Play Club community, you must be a member, and you must have signed up to the mailing list here. 

We’ll be sending out updates and information straight to your inbox, and don’t forget to join the Facebook group too!
