Everyone Has The Right

9th June 2010 by Maura McHugh

Everyone Has The Right is a rolling script submission service (i.e. there is no deadline) for plays with human rights at their heart. A joint initiative of Ice and Fire with Amnesty International UK, Everyone Has The Right provides a natural home for writers exploring human rights stories to create surprising and entertaining theatre.

Submissions

Please send your script, short synopsis (no more than 200 words) and cover sheet (Download as Word Doc or as PDF file) to: Everyone Has the Right, iceandfire, Toynbee Hall, 28 Commercial Street, London, E1 6LS.

Plays from outside of the UK are welcome as long as they are original, have not been professionally produced and are written in English. Plays can be of any length, but Fire and Ice will only read full scripts (no outlines or synopses) written for theatre. No scripts by email or fax. You will receive an emailed report within two months of submission.

Everyone Has The Right is interested in scripts for all ages, so if you write theatre for young people please consider submitting to this scheme.

“Truth in drama is forever elusive. You never quite find it but the search for it is compulsive. The search is clearly what drives the endeavour. The search is your task.”
