Community Invited to Get Involved in Ambitious New Project by Stephen Joseph Theatre

sixty by sixty

Stephen Joseph Theatre are appealing to the public to get involved in an ambitious new project named '60 by 60'.

The SJT are inviting script submissions for 60 second audio plays from the community as part of the theatre's 60th anniversary celebrations.

The action must take place in a cinema, library or school – the current and two former homes of the company – and can be written for up to six actors, three male and three female, who can also play multiple roles.

Twenty plays will then be selected by SJT Artistic Director Chris Monks to be recorded by professional actors, directors and technicians who will donate their services for free.

The plays will be performed alongside 40 more from recognised playwrights including John Godber, Jane Thornton and Deborah McAndrew making 60 in total.

Chris Monks said:

"60 by 60 is an exciting and ambitious project; we have 60-second plays by 20 established and 20 newer playwrights and now we’re inviting members of the community to show us what they've got. It’s open to anyone who wants to give it a try. This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to have their play heard alongside some of the UK’s top playwrights."

The audio plays are due to be released on the website in autumn. To access the online recordings, listeners will be invited to make a donation to the Stephen Joseph Theatre's 7th Wave Fund which supports new writing and emerging artists. A rehearsed reading of the 60 plays is also planned as part of the 2015 autumn/winter season.

Submissions must not exceed 60 seconds in length, including stating the title. Scripts should be emailed to no later than 31 March, 2015, including name, age (if under 18) and contact number.
