The Windsor Fringe Marriott Award 2011

6th January 2011 by Maura McHugh

Windsor Fringe

Amateur playwrights are invited to submit unpublished one-act plays for the eighth £500 Windsor Fringe Marriott Drama Writing Award. Submissions must be received by 3 March 2011 and the three winning scripts will be selected for performances during Drama Nights at the Windsor Fringe on 6, 7 and 8 October 2011. One of the three scripts will be chosen, purely on the writing, for the £500 prize.

Eligibility
Only amateur playwrights are eligible; only one script per author will be accepted. Each play must be an original work by the entrant, and submitted scripts must not have been previously published or performed.

Criteria
Each play must be no more than 30 minutes long, have a cast of no more than six actors, and be suitable for staging in a studio theatre.

Submission guidelines
So that each script may be judged anonymously, the author’s name must appear on the cover page only, not in the script. Writers should submit two copies of their plays, printed on loose sheets of A4 paper with no binding or stapling. Pages must be numbered. No submissions will be accepted by email; no scripts will be returned. The cover page must show the name of the play and the author’s name, contact details and signature. A £5 reading fee will be charged per entry. Please make cheques payable to Windsor Fringe. Scripts should be sent together with the reading fee to:
