How to Enter Ticket to Write 2014

The competition is for one-act stage plays about The Beatles or any other artist, group or aspect of the 60s Mersey pop music scene. The plays should last about 40 - 45 minutes. Three plays will be chosen to be staged at the Unity Theatre on Tuesday and Wednesday July 15 and 16 . The same plays will be staged on both nights giving a greater payback for the efforts of the writers, director and actors. The audience votes will still be included in the overall choice of the winner of the £150 prize.

The plays can feature any aspect of The Beatles or other Mersey artists of the 60s era - their music, work or lives. They can even be inspired by a song or song-title.

The 40- 45 minute plays can have a maximum of four characters. The closing date for entries is Friday April 18, 2014.
