The Delta Collective - Festive New Writing Night

Category: Theatre

Festive New Writing Night | The Delta Collective | Deadline: 31st October 2019

Submissions are open for The Delta Collective’s festive new writing night which will take place in early December in London.

They will be using the scratch night to raise money and food bank donations - the Christmas season is often very difficult for London’s food banks, and they want to do what they can to make December a little bit brighter for those in need. A portion of ticket sales will be donated in cash, and they will be asking everyone to bring donations for a foodbank collection on the night.

The theme is December, and everything that comes with it: family, faith, holidays, materialism, mental health, identity, weather, and obviously putting reindeer ears on your dog.

WRITERS: they are looking for new writing pieces of any genre or style, under 10 minutes in length, minimal set/props, and a maximum of 4 characters, which fit the theme.

Please submit your piece through the link on their website here 

Deadline: 31st October 2019.

The opportunity is also open for songs, stand-up, sketch comedy, poetry and spoken word and for actors.

Please note that these schemes are listed here for your convenience. However, they are run by external organisations and unless otherwise noted the BBC has no involvement with them. Therefore the BBC cannot respond to any queries in connection to those and accepts no liability for the accuracy of third party websites and the information contained on them.
