Emerging dramatists sought by Handful Productions

Derry- based writing and performance group, Handful Productions is looking for emerging dramatists, providing the opportunity to have their work professionally produced, directed and performed. No cash prize is on offer. They are looking for 4 to 8 plays.

Spokesperson Felicity McCall said: “Our awards for all funding terms insist that the chosen plays must be by truly emerging authors; and the Playhouse is anxious to ensure our catchment area is as widespread as possible.”

Director Bernie Mahon, who work closely with the short-listed playwrights.

Scripts should range from ten to thirty minutes; they must never have been professionally staged before; small cast numbers and simple settings with a potential to tour will be a distinct advantage.

The organisers have been approached by an official body for a piece of work based specifically on the subject of recovering alcoholism and some entrants may be inspired by this.

Submitted entries by email or hard copy by November 1, 2007.
