SEARCH FOR NEW PLAYS (article first published : 2001-09-8)

The National Arts Council has launched a special project which entails a search for new plays.

In line with NAC policy to discover, develop and foster South African talent, the project will assist writers in not only getting their plays written but also getting them onto stages. The NAC is offering R30,000 to each of five writers to enable them to write their plays.

Any writer with an idea for a play is invited to submit a one-page synopsis of the proposed play to the NAC by October 13, 2001. The NAC theatre and literature advisory panels will read all submissions and choose the works of five writers which they feel are best, most promising or most interesting.

The five writers chosen will then be granted R30,000 each to take and develop their plays. Copies of the plays are to be submitted to the NAC but remain the property of the writers. The NAC then further offers R50,000 to any theatre or group wishing to produce any of the five plays. A full production proposal will be required by the NAC to access these funds.

Writers should send their one page synopsis to the NAC at PO Box 500, Newtown, Johannesburg, 2113. More details from Edwin Rihlamvu at the NAC office on (011) 838-1383 or fax (011) 838-6363 or e-mail: edwin@nac.org.za or visit www.nac.org.za
