The Director’s Club are looking for writers to respond to their latest brief Santa’s Secret… which will be performed at 7pm on Monday 17th December at Southwark Playhouse.

Christmas is a time of year where most of the country stand still for one day… Its tradition influences where we will be, who we will be with and what we will be doing. It is a day where we can reflect on our lives, our choices and what is meaningful. It is a time of year that evokes many feelings, emotions and situations… It is a time of year where there is magic, mystery and misery. It is the time of year where there are many songs, and many Santa’s… It is a time of year where many stories are told… and many are not…

What secrets are you hiding up your chimney this Christmas?

The Brief
– 5-7 minute monologues, duologues or short plays for up to 4 characters
– Short plays based on the secrets being kept/hidden at Christmas
– Comical stories, dark tales, dramatic moments, true stories, fictional ones, we are open and interested!

This brief is completely open to interpretation by the writer, it can be based on true life stories or fictional. We seek out scripts that have a strong sense of character and story, and that move and evoke emotion within our audiences, be it through laughter or tears, we like variety and a range of comedy and drama in all of our productions.

Please send all scripts to scripts@directorscuttheatre.co.uk by midnight on Thursday 22nd November.
