North West Playwrights in association with Theatre by the Lake, Keswick


Deadline 5th August

SCORE is NWP’s latest opportunity for writers to see their work directed and read by professionals at Keswick’s beautiful Theatre by the Lake. We are looking for complete short plays, of twenty minutes playing time, suited to a cast drawn from the Theatre by the Lake summer season company.There is a maximum of three male and two female actors available, and you can find out more about them via our website:

The four selected plays will each receive two half-day workshops at the theatre, with a week between them to re-write. Dates will be Thursday 15 or Friday 16 September andThursday 22 or Friday 23 September. The project will culminate in script-in-hand performances at a time and venue(s) to be confirmed.  It will be an excellent opportunity for anyone who is interested in working out their ideas with the benefit of highly experienced directors and actors. The added advantage of the stunning environment of the Lake District makes SCORE a chance to take a break, get inspired and meet like-minded writers.

If you want to be considered for this great opportunity, please submit your scripts to us by 5th August 2011 – by post to: 18 Express Networks, 1 George Leigh Street, Manchester, M4 5DL or via email  to
