Theatre group starts search for playwrights

Woy Woy Little Theatre has started a search for local playwrights for its Flash Festival at Peninsula Theatre to be held in September.
The group is looking for scripts for plays with the theme of Change, five to 15 minutes long, from writers from the Central Coast and Hunter regions.
Deadline for submissions is March 31.
The festival aims to provide a vehicle for playwrights and first time directors as they work with new and experienced actors to bring 10 short plays to the stage.
Submitted plays will be assessed by a panel of experienced writers, with the best 10 chosen for performance.
There will be a workshop for aspiring directors run by Arne Neeme in July, with casting of the 10 plays to follow shortly after.
The festival will take place on September 21-23.
