There are two script windows coming up - so get entering.


Sheffield Theatres

Kay Mellor Fellowship

The second script window is for the Kay Mellor Fellowship at Leeds Playhouse. The first prize is amazing for this - you'll develop a first draft of a theatre script and create a pitch for TV, as well as a fee of £10,000.

There's quite a lengthy application process, so don't leave this until Sunday night. It does state:


The following is copied from the application pack:

To be eligible for this opportunity, applicants should have written between one and three professionally produced, full-length plays for theatre.


For the purposes of this selection process, this means plays that:
