The Royal Court Theatre launches their free playwriting initiative
UNHEARD VOICES 2013, inviting new playwrights of Somali descent to apply.
Everyone has a story. Everyone has a sheeko. What’s yours?
Write a play and have your voice heard.
The Royal Court is running an 11-week playwriting group starting in January 2013 to develop and nurture new playwrights of Somali descent. Each weekly session will involve sharing ideas, reading and talking about plays and writing exercises. Participants will work towards writing a new play, which we will read in consideration for production here at the Royal Court.
No previous playwriting experience is needed. To apply for the course, send us a maximum of 10 pages of writing intended for live performance on the stage. If your application is successful you’ll be invited to come to the weekly playwriting workshops at the Royal Court theatre, led by a professional playwright.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 30 NOVEMBER 2012.
All applications must be written in English.
