Theatre Grand-Slam

Accepting email submissions of very short, entertaining scripts for our regular grand-slam/pub event in South London.

Scripts shouldn't be over a page long (between 3 - 5 minutes), require no more than five actors and have very basic lighting/sound direction.

The audience votes for their favourite play and the winner gets the chance to develop this for future performance at a top London fringe venue. There's even a prize for the runner-up!

Apart from a lot of fun, this is a good way to try out ideas on an audience before developing further.

Priority is given to writers who live/work in South London. Newcomers welcome.

Please email script and a short writer biog/CV to info@zeitgeisttheatre.com
