A word about Season 2020

In light of the current global pandemic, and the devastating and economic impact this has had on our Arts community, the usual submission fees for our annual Season of work were waived this year. This meant that all writers wishing to submit scripts for our Season 2020 – incorporating The Metropolis Monologues and The City Park Plays – can do so free of charge. We are excited to announce that we received a very high volume of scripts this year – perhaps this was a result of the waved fees, but, regardless, we were delighted to receive everyone’s scripts at this challenging time in the world’s history. All writers are to be congratulated on completing and submitting scripts for this year’s Season 2020 – which we are sure will be a good one!
