STOP PRESS! New Perspectives offering a great chance for writers. Deadline is the end of January.

Writers are the lifeblood of theatre and New Perspectives has an enviable track record of finding and nurturing the very best new regional writing talent, as well as providing early career opportunities for writers to see their work performed.

This year we’re running another DREAM UP writing competition, and we’re inviting East Midlands based writers to submit short scripts in response to the following question, posed by Tyrone Huggins in his play The Honey Man which we’re co-producing with Derby LIVE in Spring 2012.

‘How can I remember things I never knew?’

We are looking for scripts that are 10-15 minutes in length, and feature a maximum of 3 characters.

We’re offering cash prizes of £500 for the winning script and £100 each for five runners up.

Plus, a selection of the best entries will be performed as part of a summer 2012 touring production by our new STEP UP Creatives training ensemble, and/or as one of a series of audio recordings which we will publish on our website.

More information, application forms, and full competition rules are available on our website at
