Join the Zeitgeist

Just a very quick post from me as time is precious/short/ticking by [delete as you feel appropriate] and deadlines for a million and one things are snapping at my heels.

The following has been brought to my attention & is worth further investigation if you fancy turning your scriberly (wtf?) hand to a bit of theatre writing.  These guys describe themselves as, "staging topical, new writing that's relevant to modern times".  I don't have any affiliation with them - it was just something passed on to me, so please check out all their credentials for yourself.  For further information, their website is

Scripts must not be more than eight minutes long, require no more than five actors and have very basic lighting/sound/set requirements. The emphasis is on originality, variety and entertainment.
