Talkback 2016/17
Call for scripts

January 2016
Writer Support Programme
Call for new scripts

Are you a South Asian woman with something to say through writing for performance?  Then Kali wants to hear from you.  We are looking for original and innovative short and full length theatre scripts.

Our successful Talkback readings showcase a diverse range of new writing by South Asian women. We are planning our Talkback 2016/17 season and are inviting South Asian women writers and aspiring writers to send us a play.

From the scripts submitted, writers will be chosen to join Kali’s Writer’s Development Programme, which includes 6 fortnightly writing workshops in London, discussions with guest writers & dramaturgs and 1-1 dramaturgical support. This culminates in a public reading of selected works in 2017.

All submitted plays must be original and not previously published or performed professionally. They can be about any subject you want to explore.
They could be between approximately 30mins and 1.5hrs long. They must be capable of being presented by no more than 5 actors. We may choose to develop and present just a section of a full length script.  

NB: The submitted script must be printed in black, single sided, double spaced and unbound with page numbers a script name on each page. 
Please include your full contact details on the first page.

Deadline: Scripts must reach Kali by 
Friday 18 March

Please send a hard copy of your play to:
Kali Theatre Co.  ‘Call out’
The Albany Centre
Douglas Way
London SE8 4AG
AND Email a word doc or PDF version
to binita[@] 

We are sorry but we cannot return scripts. We will acknowledge receipt of your script by email and let you know if you have been chosen approximately 3 weeks later after our Readers Panel has met and discussed it.
