Persistent & Nasty: call out for new writing from female identified BAME talent

We’re now accepting submissions for our March event.

For the second Persistent and Nasty rehearsed reading we’re especially keen to showcase work from female-identified people of colour.

We’re therefore specifically inviting writers from BAME and mixed heritage backgrounds to submit their scripts (submission details below).

Similarly we are always keen to meet performers of colour based in Scotland.

Please help us to reach as many writers and actors as possible by spreading the word!

Submission guidelines:

Only female and femme-identified writers of colour will be considered for this submission window

15-30 minutes in length (approximately 20-30 pages).

The script can be written for theatre, tv, radio or film.

Priority will be given to scripts that explore themes of gender equality, challenge traditional gender roles and explore feminist issues.

Priority will be given to scripts that have more than one female character.

If the submitted script is an excerpt from a longer piece, the excerpt should be able to stand alone and be understood.

Please use as close to industry standard formatting as possible. Minimum requirement is 12pt font size, double line spacing and page numbers.

Alongside the script itself, please provide the following:

a short biography
a brief synopsis
character descriptions
a few words on what inspired you to write this particular piece

Please send the above information to Louise Oliver at:
