Applications are now open for young writers to take part in the Theatre in the Rough Festival 2012.
This year’s festival commemorates Liverpool’s links with the Titanic. We want to reclaim the voices from the savage sea, and tell an old story in a fresh way.
We are producing 10 short monologues for live performance, and 10 3-minute audio plays as part of a wider week-long Titanic installation.
Writers will work with experts from Merseyside Maritime Museum to research the subject, and then attend a six-week workshop programme with professional theatre practitioners from the Theatre in the Rough Festival to develop their play.
And, as well as being performed and recorded, writers’ plays will also be published in an anthology.

Deadline: 25 March 2012.
