Finding Words – A New Writing Initiative

5 Mar

An opportunity for anyone who’s script writing (or knows anyone who is)…

Calling all young playwrights…

The Ashton Group is searching for a new stage play with which to tour the North West, professionally produced by its acclaimed Apprenticed Actors Company.

The one act play should have a running time of 60 minutes and a cast of four.

The writer should be no older than 25.

The play can be upon any theme or subject, but must be suitable for a mixed audience.


All writers should submit a synopsis including plot and character outline, and the first ten pages of their play.

Ten writers will be shortlisted to have their work developed into a full length piece, with the support and guidance of a professional mentor.

Four of these plays will receive a staged reading in early June, after which one will be selected for full production.

Please send submissions to The Ashton Group’s Resident Director Chris Loveless: – or email for further info if required.

Deadline for submissions: Monday 11th March 2013
