The McLellan Award 2007 Playwriting Competition

Deadline: 15 June 2007.

2007 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Robert McLellan, one of Scotland's greatest dramatists. The Arran Theatre and Arts Trust, in partnership with Robert McLellan's family, the community of Arran and North Ayrshire Council, will work together to bring to a new generation, through drama, visual arts and music, the beauty, wit and vigour of McLellan's work and, at the same time, strive to further his hopes and aims by encouraging and sponsoring new work by young Scottish playwrights.

The prize for the competition is £1000, and a production of the play by Nutshell at the McLellan festival in September.

Plays should be 60 - 90mins long, be in any form of Scots or Scots dialect - living Scots - rural or urban, and be capable of being performed by no more than 5 actors.
