CALLING FOOTBALL FANS WHO WANT TO WRITE! Monkeywood Theatre want your football stories

Red or Blue? What does football mean to you?

Manchester City & Manchester United Fans
Manchester City & Manchester United Fans

Monkeywood Theatre are looking for fans of Manchester United and Manchester City to write 5 minute plays about what it means to be a football fan.

The plays will be performed alongside Monkeywood’s latest production By Far the Greatest Team, which will explore and celebrate football fandom in Manchester, and comes to The Lowry Thu 17 – Sun 20 Sept.

Ten plays will be selected to make up Ten Tiny Plays about Football, which will be performed script-in-hand by professional actors. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never written before, all you need is to be a Manchester football fan with a story to tell. Your play can take any form you wish (dialogue, monologue, even silent!) as long as it runs at approximately 5 minutes (think 5 pages of evenly spaced dialogue as an approximate guide).

Please send your finished plays to by 27th July 2015. Successful writers will be notified by 17th August.

Please Note: There is no fee for entry and this is an unpaid opportunity.
