Details

In our fourth season, the winning playwright will receive £1000 prize fee and their play will be produced, financed and toured by Red Dragonfly, in association with Grist to the Mill, to various festivals and theatres around England from May to July 2022.

This year we are looking for ideas and submissions, which can be developed into a full length 1 hour play. As before, the subject of which can be anything you want – from something contemporary to more traditional folk and fairy tales. The play should be in the English language and written for a cast of up to four actors – although they can double up on characters if you want – and workable with a minimal set, however do not let this restrict your imagination – it’s amazing what can be accomplished on a stage with very little.

In the first round, we will review all submissions and select up to ten successful applicants to a free one day workshop with published playwright and dramaturg Ross Ericson. Applicants will then continue to be mentored, and have one-to-one script development sessions, either face-to-face or via zoom, with Ericson before the winner is selected.
