Event Details

Ho, ho, ho dear Writers! 

Your script can be part of a fabulous evening of scratchy festive Festival fun!

12 writers will have their instant scripts (no longer than 2m 47s) performed LIVE, script-in-hand, by our 24:7 Players. The audience will decide on their favourite. The winning writer will get to enter a script into the 2014 24:7 competition free of charge.

How to be a part:

On Tuesday 10 December there will be a special Writers' Lunch (12:30 -  2pm - REGISTER HERE) and an extra Writers' Tea (6 -7:30pm) at 24:7 HQ.

Bring your sandwich and laptop, set yourself up in our Writers' Lab and you'll get an hour to write a script lasting no longer than 2m 47s. Before you start you'll pick at random a unique title for your script and a key word that you must use in the piece. You can write for as many characters as you like, but there will only be four actors (two female, two male) to perform the piece.

When you've finished we'll take a copy from you on a USB stick.

The following day, our 24:7 Players will rehearse all the scripts.

During the Do in the evening of the 11th December, a random draw will bring 12 scripts to the stage to be performed by the 24:7 Players.

Each audience member will have two tokens. At the end of the show, they will use them to vote for their two favourite pieces. The overall winner on the night will be invited to enter a script into the 2014 24:7 competition free of charge.

Then, with the writer's permission, each unperformed scripts will be performed and recorded for uploading to YouTube.

If you would like to take part – and why wouldn't you want to! – register on Eventbrite for the Lunch OR Tea on Tuesday 10 December. If you register, you must come!

We're looking forward to having a great night with your work at the heart of it.
