International Day of the Girl is a global campaign to raise awareness of the inequality faced by girls around the world based on their gender. This inequality includes areas such as right to education/access to education, nutrition, legal rights, medical care, violence against women, unfree child marriage and protection from discrimination.
As part of this event we would like to hold open submissions for playwrights of any level of experience to submit a short play, no longer than 10minutes long that responds to the theme ‘the role of the girl’. We are looking for people to interpret this theme in a variety of ways but roughly we are looking for writers to explore what role girl’s play in our society, how they relate to other people, how other people relate them.
Stellar Quines and Village Pub Theatre will select three of these plays to be performed on 11th October by a team of professional actors and director at the Village Pub Theatre, Leith.
There is a fee available of £100 for the selected plays plus travel. You must be free to attend rehearsals and performance in Leith on 11th October in order to be considered.
Please submit your 10 minute play by midnight on Sunday 24th September using the online form.
Please note files will be uploaded to Stellar Quines’ Google Drive. To allow for file upload you will be required to sign in to Google to access the form. If you do not have a google account you will need to create one. If you would prefer not to submit a form via google please email Rebecca Davis with Village Pub Theatre in the subject title (Rebecca is on annual leave until the 18 September and will reply to queries promptly on her return).
