Friday, 20 April, 2012

The Off Cut Festival 2012 at Riverside Studios is accepting short play submissions from new and undiscovered playwrights.

Writers may submit plays of no more than 15 minutes in length. There are no restrictions on style, topic or genre.

Closing date for submissions is 1st June, after which, 28 plays will be selected to show in rep at the Riverside Studios over the first two weeks of the festival. During this time, the audience will be voting for their favourite plays. The top eight plays will run for the whole of the third week, with the audience still voting for the ultimate winner.

There will also be a panel of industry professionals – headed by the renowned playwright and screenwriter, Moira Buffini – on the final night. They will award further prizes for writing, directing and acting.
