22 January – Shorts Night

On 22 January, we will be holding a Shorts Night to open our 2019 readings.

During a Shorts Night, we will be hearing a selection of works that are 10 minutes or less. It is an opportunity to get feedback on short scripts, treatments, outlines and extracts of new pieces.

After the Shorts Night, we will be holding readings on the following dates: 5 February, 19 February, 5 March, 19 March, 2 April and 16 April. During these readings we will hear full-length scripts of theatrical and radio plays and screenplays.

If you are a ScriptTank member, please come along. If you would like to join, please get in touch using the contact form.

2 October – Shorts Night

On 2 October, we will be holding our now-traditional Shorts Night to start our Autumn-Winter term.

There is still some room available for short pieces to be read on the night.

If you are a member of ScriptTank and have a script (full or an extract), treatment or outline, that’ll take less than 10 minutes to read, please let Katharine Way know.

You can also bring a piece along on the night. We will do our best to have it read, but can’t guarantee it will be read.

New members

If you are interested in coming along to the Shorts Night to find out what ScriptTank is about,  please contact us. We are especially interested in hearing from BAME and younger writers, and those who are early in their careers.

If you’d like to know more about ScriptTank, please send us your question.

If you are a professional playwright or screenwriter, or a strong desire to become a professional, we’ll be a good fit. But coming to a Shorts Nights is a great way to see if ScriptTank will be a good fit for you.

And if you’re a member and know a writer (or two) who’ll be a good fit for ScriptTank, please bring them along on 2 October.

See you next week.

1 May – ‘May Day’ Shorts Night

On the 1st May – May Day bank holiday – ScriptTank will be holding one of our occasional Shorts Nights.

If you have a short piece of work – such as a short film, an extract from a full script, or a treatment or outline for a new performance work – you can have it read out.

Unlike a regular meeting, you don’t need to have to come to at least three meetings to have something read on a Shorts Night. So if you’re new to ScriptTank and want to dip your toes in the waters of criticism, this is the time to do it.

If you have a short piece you’d like read, please send an email to Katharine. Include the name of the piece, the medium it is for (theatre, radio, film or TV), and its casting needs (performing ages of the characters, and how many male and female actors the script requires).

Pieces must be no longer than 10 minutes long when read out (about 10 pages for a correctly formatted script).

(Please note, the date given for this reading in the ScriptTank newsletter was incorrect. Sorry for the confusion.)
