In Lama’s last Monthly Question event, we asked our audience to leave us questions and this is what we picked out of a hat… Our January question is:

WHY DO PEOPLE LIE?
  • What inspires you when you read the question? We are interested in what you are thinking about and how the question might affect the work you do. Gather whatever inspiration the questions give you, and use it to fuel your chosen discipline. The questions are open to many interpretations! 
  • When you submit please keep in mind that Lama encourage artistic exploration, provoking and risk-taking writing. 
  • Short plays are limited to 8 pages in standard playwriting formats. (You can submit your 10 pages play but please keep in mind that we might ask you to make a few cuts.) 
  • Poems/ Monologues are limited to 2 pages. 
  • Song samples should be mp3 and no more than 3 minutes. 
  • Only submissions by electronic attachment will be accepted, Microsoft Word document or PDF. 
  • Playwrights can be from anywhere, but plays must be in English. 
  • Submit a BLIND copy of your script and include a list of characters/descriptions. 
  • E-mail your Script/Song/Poem to: lamatheatercompany@gmail.com
