Jump Start - call for new work

Dear Practitioner,

I’m writing to you because you’ve either been involved in a previous Jump Start event or expressed interest. Jump Start is an initiative run by Worcestershire Arts Partnership to provide opportunities for new theatre works to be performed. This will be our fourth event and we are excited about the project’s progress  - more people are being engaged and we’re so pleased to be working with so many local theatre makers.

We are looking for:

New theatre work that has not previously been performed 

Work that is 10 - 15 minutes long 

Work that is low-tech and does not require any get-in or get-out time 

Ideally, work from Worcestershire-based practitioners 

We can also provide an opportunity for writers to link with directors & actors so don’t worry if you have a text or an idea but no company!

Submissions (either an outline of the work or a script) should be made by email to me by FRIDAY 15th JANUARY 2016. We will then select 5 submissions and  invite people to a meeting where writers, practitioners & actors can link up and start rehearsing. The performance night will be SATURDAY 5th MARCH 7pm at Worcester Arts Workshop. There may be some rehearsal space available at WAW, but generally each group will be expected to rehearse independently and to sort out their own space & timings.

If you’re an actor / director who’s interested in the project, please drop me a line and I’ll keep you up to speed with the February meeting date.

We are pleased to be able to offer a small fee of £100 to each of the 5 submissions chosen to perform at Jump Start. The fee is offered on condition that each of the 5 chosen pieces of work will be performed without a script at the event on 5th March.

Please pass this message onto your networks & anyone who might be interested.


The Jump Start Facebook group is here - https://www.facebook.com/groups/248446278623071/ - so please like it & use it to share details, ideas, questions etc.

Thanks everyone, please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to receiving your submissions!
