Off Cut Festival Competition

The In Company theatrical company in London are currently accepting play submissions for the Off Cut Festival in the Old Red Lion Theatre, Islington.

Each play must be a maximum of 15 minutes in length, and should not involve more than four actors. 24 plays will be selected and played over two weeks at the festival. An audience vote will choose eight plays to advance.

Those plays will enter a 'finals' week, and will be performed in front of a professional panel for prizes. The panel consists of Olivier-nominated Moira Buffini (playwright), BAFTA-winning Nigel Douglas (director), Robert Rigby (author), and Andrew William Robb (West End producer)

The prize for the best play is a week-long production of a piece of the playwright's choice at The Old Red Lion Theatre.

The deadline for entries is 5pm August 17th 2009.

Successful writers will be notified by e-mail and/or telephone by September 1st, 2009. Further information on how to apply is available via the web site.
