• Plays must last no longer than a half hour

• Plays must be suitable to tour to intergenerational village hall audiences 15+ as well as theatre audiences.

• Plays will reflect the maxim that ‘specificity breeds universality’ Miro, and the nature of NTC’s mission statement, whilst continuing to push the boundaries of theatre.

• Plays will be directed by Gillian Hambleton, Artistic Director of NTC.

• Selected Playwrights will be mentored and supported by writer Ann Coburn & Gillian Hambleton, Artistic Director.

• a one page synopsis of your idea for the half hour play (please note if you are chosen to work on this project, we cannot guarantee your idea will be produced, you may need to modify it to ensure it fits in with the whole project)
