SUBMISSION OVERVIEW

Someone New Theatre Company is keen to bring in new ideas, new plays, and new writers to its community, and so we are keeping WRITE OR WRONG?, our scriptwriting competition, going as an opportunity for playwrights to have their scripts performed professionally. 

We have slots open for radio plays as a part of Theatia Podsie, for podcast productions as part of SNTC Presents, for performance as a one-act play in festivals, and as a full-length stage productions held in Geelong, Victoria. ​ Selected submissions will be paid for performance rights, submission is not a guarantee of selection, and all plays must be the property of the person submitting.

Winners will be announced on Sunday the 3th of April. Late submissions will not be considered.

WHAT DO YOU GET?

We have a range of productions and projects that are being produced this year - first and foremost the Theatia Podsie project starting in May, but we have other production and project slots as well. We want to give the opportunity to new playwrights to have their work produced, and we want to pay you for your scripts! 

Scripts that are selected for Write or Wrong will be paid for performance rights, depending on the production or project that your script is being offered. You as a writer are also invited to be a part of the production process, and watch your creation come to life.
