Open Call Alpine Fellowship > Theatre Prize 2020 in Sweden Deadline 1 April

10.03.2020 |

In 2020, the Alpine Fellowship Theatre Prize will be awarded for the best playwriting response to the theme ‘Forgiveness and Retribution’. The Prize is aimed at encouraging theatre writers at the start of their careers to explore and challenge philosophical ideas using the dramatic form.

The final piece must be no more than 45 minutes in length and require no more than four actors. The winning play will be performed as a rehearsed reading so simplicity in staging is preferred. This prize is open to anyone above 18 years of age.

The prize will be £3000 plus a rehearsed reading at the Fellowship’s annual Symposium to which the winner will be invited to attend. Runners up will be invited to attend the Fjällnäs symposium to exhibit their work, all food and accommodation covered. Travel expenses will be reimbursed up to a total of £500. A shortlist of top 10 entries will be announced on 1st May 2020, the winners on 15th May 2020.

Alpine Fellowship is a group of writers, thinkers and artists who are passionate about learning and communicating with a view to better understanding themselves and others. We value a capacity for openness - being engaged in critically reflecting on firmly held beliefs; the courage to be vulnerable - speaking from a place of lived experience; the drive for curiosity - being truly able to receive and listen to others.

The open call deadline is Wednesday 1st April 2020. Details about how to apply can be found here.
