And just like that, another season of SEEN draws to a close, as does the time for the Trainees at The Other Room.
This month, we’re thinking about endings and why they can be so difficult to navigate.
Why do we struggle with things coming to an end? Is there such a thing as the perfect ending to a story or scenario?
Often endings create more questions than they answer, cut short with so much left unsaid. How does this affect the nature of story-telling? Can a tale ever truly be complete? In playwriting, how can we negotiate the final few pages to create the most powerful finale? Is the point of the ending to conclude satisfactorily or truthfully?
Send us your work-in-progress endings... perhaps you have different ideas you’d like to try out? Have a go at tying up those loose ends.
Scripts should be no longer than 10 minutes long and must respond to the theme.
To apply, please email us your script to email@example.com. We are always interested in hearing from actors and directors so please send us an expression of interest and/or CV.
We are especially interested in receiving submissions from people of colour, LGBTQ+ individuals, disabled individuals, working class individuals and trans / non-binary individuals.
As always, SEEN will be three 10-minute script-in-hand performances which all respond to a particular theme, followed by a post-scratch Q&A/discussion between writers and the audience.
