Submitting a script

Guidelines for submitting a script

Please refer to the guidelines below and should you have any further questions, email info@druid.ie

· Submit your script by email only to scripts@druid.ie.

· Submit only one script per email.

· Submit original work only.

· Submit only those plays that have not had a full professional or amateur production. In this light, plays emerging from student productions or from a reading/workshop will be accepted.

· Writers whose work has previously been produced by amateur theatre companies are asked to submit only those plays that are not currently intended for production.

· Druid is not in a position to accept radio scripts, TV scripts or screenplays.

· Druid is not in a position to accept one-act plays, musicals or plays for children.

· Scripts must be submitted as a finished draft (see Formatting Guidelines below) and will be assessed on that understanding. Synopses or treatments are accepted if submitted with an accompanying complete script.

Formatting Guidelines

· Scripts should be typed on A4 with pages numbered

· Please ensure you check the spelling in your script thoroughly

· Font size should not be lower than 12pt

· Stage directions must be in italics

· Character names must be in capital letters

· Please save your file in one of the following formats:

Word (.doc)

· Your name and contact details should appear once only, on the title page. This ensures anonymity for the reader.

· A cover letter should accompany your play giving your contact details, an email address, a brief description of the play and a brief overview of your writing to date (1 – 2 pages).
