The High Sheriff’s Cheshire Prize for Literature 2019 is open until July 1, 2019.
Free to enter.
The Prize will be awarded for an original and previously unpublished playscript for theatre, radio or television, max 15 minutes in length.
Submit a one-page treatment, 500-800 words. The scripts should be in one location and feature no more than three actors, while exploring the use of virtual social networking characters.
Twelve submissions will be commissioned to produce the 15 minute script. Four entries will then be chosen to be performed and judged at a live performance in November at Storyhouse.
You must have been born, live or have lived, study or have studied, work or have worked in Cheshire. For the purposes of the Prize, Cheshire includes the Wirral, as well as Warrington and Halton.
