Do you have an award-winning play in you? (Or know someone who does?)

16 plays were premièred at the 24:7 Theatre Festival, Manchester, July 2008

4 were featured in the December MEN Theatre Awards:
A Dog Called Redemption, Fourteen, Grass and Ways To Look At Fish

2 of them won MEN Theatre awards:
A Dog Called Redemption (Best New Play) and Ways To Look At Fish (Best Fringe Performance)

The call for scripts is now open!

24:7 Theatre Festival 2009 will take place from 20th - 26th July at non-theatre locations in Manchester city centre.

Applications will be taken from now until 31st January 2009. For more details, CLICK HERE to go to the website, from where you can get more information and download the Application Form and Notes.

The script must be original, unpublished and no longer than 60 minutes.
It must not have formed part of a theatre season or have been on an advertised tour.
If it has already been performed – perhaps at a festival – it can participate, but may not qualify for a 24:7 Award.

The 24:7 Theatre Festival aims to showcase talent: it makes no difference whether the writer is new or established. We base our decisions purely on the quality of each play.

“I think the biggest difference between this festival and others is that these people actually care about you and your work”
Matthew Landers, writer of award-winning play A Dog Called Redemption
