Over the week will be supporting 8 writers to develop a ten-minute theatrical piece.

What we are offering:

  • writing workshops on the 18th & 19th September, 6-9pm where you’ll be mentored to shape your piece.
  • rehearsal space either on either 20th, 21st or 22nd September, working with a director and two actors
  • FLOURISH SHOWCASE on the evening of Saturday 23rd

Guidelines for writers

  • Please don’t send us a script. Instead send us your idea for a ten-minute theatrical piece. This should be on the theme of HOME. What does ‘home’ mean to you? This could be either in the literal sense i.e. bricks & mortar / geographical, or it could be connected to ideas about identity and belonging. (It should be for a max of 2 actors) Describe your idea in 500 words max – you might want to think about:
    a. your central idea – what do you specifically want to say
    b. your motivation for writing it
    c. what you would like your audience to go away feeling/think about afterwards
  • Also, please send a paragraph telling us about yourself and what you’ve been doing (300 words max).
  • Important – you must be available for the playwriting sessions, rehearsal and showcase.
  • submissions are now open, and will close on Friday, June 30th at 5pm.
    (Selected writers will be informed by July 31st latest).
  • If you have any needs that you would like to discuss with us please get in touch at: suzette@thenurserytheatre.com and put ‘FLOURISH Artist call-out query’ in the subject heading.
  • Unfortunately we cannot accept submissions from outside of the UK.
