Category: 4. The Installation (Nov 2013)


Shortlisted Scripts

We are pleased to announce the much awaited programme for our Autumn/Winter season, focusing on The Arts. The response to our request for scripts relating to Performance and The Arts was outstanding, so we were hard put to make our selection, but we are very proud to announce our shortlisted plays

The Project by James Paul Avery
Here Comes a Lady by Jeffrey Baker
Truth or Seduction? by Mark Abbey
The Exhibition by Judah Skoff
This is the Beginning of Everything by Anna Forsyth
Two Out of Five by Jonas Oppenheim
What Would Andrew Lincoln Do? by James Robert-Moore
Seventeen Thousand Five Hundred and Then Some by John Hamilton May

The Installation is a consideration of our relationship with the Arts. How does the audience interact with theatre, painting – or indeed how do we interact with one another? Watch this space for details on how to book your tickets for this unique gallery opening.


Arts and ‘Performance’ Deadline

If you have not yet submitted a script in response to our ‘Performance’ theme, then never fear; although the deadline has officially passed, we have been so inspired by the variety that we have received, that we have extended the deadline and will be considering any further Arts themed short plays.

What do we mean by ‘ The Arts’? We are looking for scripts that consider aspects the Arts in general: gallery art (painting / sculpture / installation), performance art (theatre / music / film) or literature. And don’t forget, this could also mean the construction of the Arts, for example scenes from backstage or monologues from out of work actors. We want to explore how we relate to the Arts and how we engage with both the medium and its creators.
