Competition: London Horror Festival 2015

London Horror FestivalCalling all budding playwrights!

To celebrate the 5th year of their continued support to new work in the horror theatre world, our friends the London Horror Festival are hosting a short playwriting competition with the guiding theme ‘It’s not what it seems …’

They are looking for unique, dark and intimate storytelling to terrify and disturb their opening night audience. Entries are welcome from anyone and everyone, whether you are a first time scribe or a seasoned horror theatre pro.

Submissions are open from now until Saturday 15th August, after which the festival team will shortlist 3 plays to be staged by a professional cast and crew at The Etcetera Theatre, one of London’s top fringe venues and official home of the London Horror Festival. The plays will be performed on Monday 5th October, at the opening night of the 2015 festival.

And for one lucky writer, there will be an amazing special prize…..The overall winning play, which will be chosen and announced on the night by a special guest judge, will be automatically granted a 3 night performance slot at the Black Box Festival in January 2016, with the opportunity to stage a fully developed production of their play!

So embrace your dark side and get writing! This is a unique opportunity to be part of the 5th year of the London Horror Festival and see your deepest, darkest stories brought to life on a London stage! Please send submissions and any enquiries to lhf@etceteratheatre.com
