Festival type: New writing

Region: London

About the festival

Network Theatre has a proud tradition of encouraging new writers, often providing a platform for people who have never written for the stage before to produce work.

Last year, they put on a night of new writing, under the banner of 'Write of Spring' and this year they decided to bypass Spring and go straight to Summer.

So, this year, the New Writing night will be held on Saturday 18 August under the title of 'Odes to Joy'.

They'd like to have an underlying theme of positivity, so they're hoping for a night of laughter and fun.

There's enough doom and gloom in the world, so we hope an evening of brilliantly funny and warm new writing will make everyone a bit happier!

So what are we after?

Sketches and short plays from 2 minutes to approximately 10 minutes which fit the general theme of the night.

The only constraints are that they must comply with festival conditions, so light on tech and carry-on props only.

Other than that, you're only limited by your own whimsy, sense of humour and imagination!
