About the work
We are seeking women writers for a series of short works to be presented at Theatre Works St.Kilda in late 2019. The works will all centre on the topic of women vigilantes: Women who take the law into their own hands, fight for justice, do bad things because they have to – their missions can be global or minute, based on true stories or from another world completely.
The works will be developed and performed by predominantly untrained artists and developed through a combined process of devising and script-writing. We are interested in working with writers across a range of ages, experiences and cultural backgrounds. Trans women and non-binary folk are encouraged to apply. It will be a blind submission process, with writers details kept anonymous from assessors. There are a few demographic questions included in the application so that we can ensure diversity amongst those selected.
About us – the directors
We are Krystalla Pearce and Bridget Balodis. We are both theatre directors passionate about new voices on our stages. We both have extensive experience developing new work as well as working with untrained performers. You can google us if you’d like to know more.
If you are selected you will be required to attend an initial workshop on Monday February 18 at Theatre Works, St.Kilda.
Selected writers will be supported throughout their writing process including two days of development with actors across May and June 2019. The short works will continue to be developed for potential presentation at Theatre Works later in 2019.
How to submit
Simply fill out the short online form before 6pm on the 7th of February. Make sure to attach a writing sample, this does not need to be on topic, but is just to demonstrate your writing style.
All writers will be contacted by the 14th of February.
If you have any questions about the project or the submission process please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
