"Read something inspirational lately? Something which moved you? Write a scene which has been inspired by a novel of the last sixty years and paint a picture of life for you in Scotland today.
IGNITE is a national playwriting competition aiming to find undiscovered voices for the Scottish Stage. Using a contemporary piece of literature as inspiration, we want you to write a short play scene (not an adaptation of the original source).
The winner will receive six months focused dramaturgical and directorial support, advice and training to develop their scene into a full length play, which will be given a rehearsed reading as part of Glasgow City Council’s Aye Write Festival in February 2007.
Entries will be judged anonymously by our Creative Director, Julie Ellen, and by our Associate Playwrights. The deadline for entries is 31 August 2006, and winners will be announced at the end of September.
