Blanc Space Playwright Series V
Calling for new Chinese original scripts submission




Submit script by 30 Sept 2015

In light of the lack of new Chinese scripts in the local theatre scene, Drama Box launched a new playwright series in 2007 under its training platform – Blanc Space. The company hopes to encourage more people to write and produce new scripts for staging. To date, we have successfully produced more than 17 original Chinese language scripts.

Playwright Series V focus on providing playwrights writing scripts in Chinese, and residing in Singapore, with an opportunity to stage their script.

Who Can Apply?

Anyone who resides in Singapore, is writing scripts in Chinese and looking for an opportunity to stage it, regardless of nationality, age, gender and experience.

Application Procedure

*Important Note
The script needs to be for a play at least 1 hour or longer, it should be written in: Font Size - 12 pt, Font - Sim Hei/Sim Sun, Line Spacing - 1½

Selection Criteria

Drama Box will invite established theatre directors/playwrights to form a selection panel. The panelists will select no more than 2 scripts from all submissions to develop for staging. They will look at the style and completeness/readiness of the script (for staging) as the main selection criteria.

Script Incubation

Selected writers have a year to improve and develop their scripts. One of the panelists will be the dramaturg to the playwright, providing feedback to the writers. Drama Box will also organise two public play reads to gather the response and feedback from the audience before the final staging.

Workshop

Drama Box will also invite renowned playwright/s from overseas to share their playwriting process. Selected writers must attend ALL workshops organised. Those not selected will also be invited to attend so as to better their writing skills in the hope that they can submit a more developed script for future playwright series.
