We’re looking for stories about weaponised hope and unyielding optimism in this world, other planets, alternate realities, present day and future societies, both dystopian and utopian!
We’re looking for:
-Stand-alone pieces or excerpts from longer plays of 10-15 minutes
-Cast of 1-4
-Minimal set requirements.
Please send a pdf of your script, a short synopsis, and a 50-word bio to talosfest (at) gmail (dot) com putting TALOS SCRATCH SUBMISSION: [Play Title] by [Your Name] in the subject title. We are excited to hear from all applicants but want to particularly encourage BAME and LGBTQ+ artists to join us.
Deadline: 7th October 2019 (midnight)
Successful applicants will be contacted by October 31st.
