Scripts wanted

I just got this email, and think it will be on interest to all our theatre writers:

Lion Tamers Theatre Company Call For Scripts


Lion Tamers Theatre Company are looking for talented writers to submit their work for consideration for our first tour, planned for next autumn.
The tour will begin with a run at the Edinburgh Fringe next year followed by a tour of the North West in the autumn of 2012.
This is an amazing opportunity for emerging writers as well as established ones as the company is looking to develop in the area of new writing.
Although we are a new company we are hoping to offer reasonable fees to the successfull applicant as we discuss the project, however the major benefit is to raise the profile of the successfull applicant.
Although rehearsals and casting would be based in Manchester we are more than willing to accept work by writers countrywide.
To apply for this exciting opportunity please attach some samples of your work or else a complete script as the major factor in our decision will of course be the quality of the text.

The Brief

Although there is never a set criteria for play submissions we are looking favourably on plays which meets the following criteria.

 Small cast size
 Full length though capable of reducing to possibly 80 mins length in order to be edited for Edinburgh Fringe.
 Suitable for a broad general audience encompassing a broad variety of tastes.


Please send all submissions and samples of work to the following e-mail address.
For any information do not hesitate to call on 07767886145
