Hello writers, we hope you’re well.
In case you haven’t heard yet, the 24:7 Christmas Scratch Night is on Wednesday 11th December. At this we will perform up to 12 short pieces written by writers at the next Writers’ Lunch or Tea. These will take place on Tuesday 10th December, 12.30 – 2pm or 6 – 7.30pm. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN WRITING MATERIALS TO THIS.
The piece will have a specific Christmas theme, to be decided on the day, should last absolutely no longer than 2 minutes and 47 seconds, be for no more than 4 actors, probably 2 male, 2 female, although not all actors have to be used for your piece, with no set and minimum props and costumes, unless something easily accessible or that you can provide. We will rehearse your script on the Wednesday, so it MUST be left with us, on a stick or hard copy on the Tuesday.
If more than 12 writers submit, we will randomly choose the pieces to be performed, but possibly use the other scripts in another way.
On the Scratch Night itself, the 12 scripts will be performed, and the audience gets to vote on their favourite. The writer will receive a free submissions entry into next year’s 24:7.
We hope to see lots of you there, and don’t forget to book your place, as spaces are limited.
