MEET THE WRITERS
Thank you to everyone who sent their scripts into The Upsetters submissions window.
We received 132 submissions which have been through three stages of reading to select our shortlist and Final Five plays.
We have read so many amazing plays and every play that made our nine play shortlist (and many on our longlist) would be perfectly at home on stage. Unfortunately, we can only select five. Each of these five writers will have their work performed at the Bunker Theatre on Sunday, 9 June 2019 and will receive £50 for their scripts.
THE FINAL FIVE
WHERE DE MANGOES GROW
WHO KILLED CHAMELEON GIRL?
FENNEL SPIKED LAMB
In addition to the Final Five writers selected to have their plays staged at the Bunker Theatre, the following four writers produced outstanding plays which made our shortlist but, unfortunately, were not selected this time.
TIGER MUM by Eva Edo
THE TUNE IS ALWAYS BETTER ON THE OUTSIDE by Hassan Abdulrazzak
CHIPS by Ashna Rabheru
KWANJULA by Sanya Semakula
THANK TO EVERYONE WHO SUBMITTED
We’re hugely grateful for the response we’ve received and to all the writers who submitted to us. We hope that you’ll turn out to support the Final Five writers selected. Tickets are on sale for the show on the 9 June 2019.
We can’t wait for you to see these five brilliant plays!
