New writing for @pilot_theatre as part of our #platform11 project – #Generationzed

25 Sep


As part of Pilot Theatre’s ongoing involvement in the Platform 11+ project, supported by the European Union, we are delighted to announce Pilot Theatre’s first playwriting competition, Generation Zed

Generation Zed is looking to find new texts that explore teenagers relationship with our changing society and their stake within this.  We are looking for ideas to excite, challenge and inspire audiences between the ages of 11 – 15.

As well as looking for exceptional storytelling aimed at a teenage audience we are also interested in how these stories are told. The idea could be a traditional play but it could also be a piece that explores the relationship between performer and audience or a piece told across multiple platforms, whatever is the best way to actively engage the audience with the story.

The winning idea will receive a £1000 prize and a research and development week at Pilot Theatre, working with professional performers and our creative team.

We will also be awarding “Highly Commended” awards to ideas that we deem excellent.

To Enter
To enter Generation Zed please send us a synopsis of your idea (no more than one side of A4) as well as no more than five pages of a script to, but first check that your text meets the following criteria:-

The text must be designed to be performed by professional actors.

The idea must never before have been performed unless in scratch or rehearsed reading format.
