24:7 Theatre Festival

Manchester’s 24:7 is again on the lookout for exciting, challenging and innovative scripts.

2015 will see a Big Festival Weekend based in and around the Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama at Manchester University between July 24-26.

As well as plays, they are looking for monologues and site specific pieces, so this year performances can last between 5 and 90 minutes.

24:7 will act as co-producer in 2015, to ensure each play gets the very best director, cast, technical support and marketing.

At this stage, they are keeping options open as to how many plays will be produced. What they do know is 24:7 should again prove the perfect launchpad for a new script, idea or writer.
