The Fifth Word Award for most promising playwright - Deadline 15th July 2015

The Fifth Word Award for most promising playwright closes on 15th July 2015.

Fifth Word Theatre Company and Nottingham Playhouse are launching a brand new one-act play competition to uncover new playwriting talent across the East Midlands. 
The Fifth Word Award are looking for original, compelling pieces written specifically for the stage. 
This competition is for writers who are just starting out and have had no more than one play professionally produced.
The winner of the competition will receive:
  • A rehearsed reading of their play as part of a celebration event at Nottingham Playhouse in September 2015
  • A 12 month attachment with Fifth Word based at Nottingham Playhouse
  • £2000 development money
  • A mentor to provide dramaturgical support whilst on attachment
  • ‘Go and see theatre budget’
The development money is intended to give the winner the time, space and support to develop a new play over the 12 month attachment.
All entries will be read by a panel of artists and industry professionals. A rehearsed reading of the winning entry and extracts from runners up will be showcased at a special new writing event at Nottingham Playhouse in September 2015.
Entries close on 15 July 2015
