This event is in the past.
In September we are holding an event in Leeds to bring together the best of new creative talent.
The night will involve 10 finalists plays being performed to a celebrity panel and audience made up of Industry Professionals and General Public. Each piece will have it's own specially selected cast and director to ensure quality and a great night!
WRITERS - this could be your opportunity to see your words brought to life by actors on a professional Leeds stage. Submit your work which wil then be assessed by a team of local writers (to be announced shortly). The final ten pieces will then be invited to perform for one night at a Leeds theatre.
ACTORS - we're hoping this event will highlight and showcase the best of local talent and create an annual event where new talent is nutured.
DIRECTORS - we need 10 directors! Each finalist will need a cast and a director allocated to it. So if you fancy trying directing or you are trying to get recognised as a director then please get in touch.
Please note we are not able to cover any travel or accomodation costs or pay actors for their time.
Awards will be presented on the night - categories to be announced!
