If practicable, these actors could play a number of different rolls. To enter, you submit a synposis (including a plot and character outline) and the first ten pages of the play.

Prizes: Four writers will be given the opportunity to expand their entry into a full length piece with the support and guidance of a professional mentor. One of these plays will then be selected to go into development for production by the Apprenticed Actor Compnay (see website). All writers will be offered feedback on their work.

Entry Fee: None - free to enter.
