Showcase your 2 - 3 minute sketch

Behind the Bikeshed | Deadline: May 5, 2014

Don’t get it right, get it writ Tony Grounds

An opportunity to have your 2-3 minute sketch produced and performed.

Behind The Bikeshed are a london based non-profit sketch collective. They are producing a show in May and want to showcase your sketches!

The show does not yet have a name but it will be themed around the idea of:

Midnight in the garden, a picnic of earthly delights.

Midnight is the moment of change, the unexpected, the time when everything is not what it seems. Tip toeing through the rabbit hole, what’s on the other side? Is it actually greener?"

They are looking for sketches about 2-3 minutes long, inspired by the themes above.

Please submit your sketches to by Monday 5th May, 3pm.

The show will be on at the Ophelia Theatre, 574 Kingsland Rd, Dalston, London, E8 4AH in late May 2014. Unfortunately as they are non-profit and operate on a shoe-string they cannot pay you for your efforts, but they will happily comp you a ticket and a free drink at the show.
