In 2013, US senator Wendy Davis spoke for ten hours straight to preserve women's reproductive rights in Texas; Edward Snowden blew the whistle on the NSA, knowing that the moment he did he would be branded a traitor; Malala Yousafzai faced almost certain death when she spoke out against the Taliban.
Using the phrase 'Speak Up, Speak Out' as a starting point, we ask you to explore this incredible human trait, to say something when others won't, in any way that you feel possible. Whether it's a revelation, a secret, the truth or a lie, we would like to hear from you, and we'd most certainly like to hear from your characters.
Guidelines for submissions:
• Your script should be no longer than 10 minutes
• Your script should contain a maximum of 4 characters
• Your script should address the theme, but it may be freely interpreted
• Your script must be able to be performed with basic staging and technical support
• Please email your submission to email@example.com by Monday 10th March
• Please include a contact number in your submission email
• Performances of selected scripts will take place on Saturday 17th May
• Selected plays will be announced on our website in mid April 2014
• Writers of the shorts do not need to have a connection to south east London
• Submissions are restricted to one short per playwright
Deadline: Monday 10th March 2014
We never post calls for submissions that require a submission fee. Learn more here.
