Seven Dials Playhouse is calling for applications for new works to be included in its newly announced mini season

    Following a critically acclaimed premier season, which has seen sold-out shows and a string of five star reviews, Seven Dials Playhouse is calling for applications for new works to being included in its  mini season, running this summer. Four shows will each run for a week at Seven Dials Playhouse this July in this brilliant opportunity for artists, with substantial support available from Seven Dials  Playhouse.

    The deadline for submissions is 10am on Monday 30th May. 

    The season will focus on contemporary texts, plays, musicals and new writing. Seven Dials Playhouse encourages applications from work in the late stages of development, or work that is not yet financed for a longer run. In line with Seven Dials Playhouse’s current producing model, successful applicants will forgo any theatre hire fee as well as benefiting from the use of production office space, and free rehearsal space. They will also receive a box office split and marketing and producing consultation. The four shows that will make up the month-long season will be announced  in June. 

    Seven Dials Playhouse launched in February 2022 with the European premiere of Steve, followed by ground-breaking plays Diary of a Somebody and FOXES, which currently plays until 11 June. Season 2 at Seven Dials Playhouse will begin in September with a full line-up announcement later in the  summer. It seeks to provide opportunities for people to collaborate on bold, creative and high quality work while providing journeys of enlightenment and entertainment for artists and audiences  alike. 

    Amanda Davey, Chief Executive of Seven Dials Playhouse comments, “Our debut season at Seven Dials Playhouse has exceeded our expectations and we are excited to build on that success. Ahead of Season 2, we want to offer an opportunity to producers whose productions are not yet ready for a fully-fledged run to showcase their work in a West End venue. Collaboration is at the very heart of our programming model at Seven Dials Playhouse and with this in mind, we offer free rehearsal space, no venue hire fees and a box office split, and our team will also be on-hand to assist with your marketing and producing strategies. Our hope for this mini season is that it is filled with diverse  storytelling, and we particularly encourage submissions from voices that are currently  underrepresented.” 

    Seven Dials Playhouse is helmed by Chief Executive Amanda Davey, with Executive Creative Producer Mitchell Reeve leading on producing and programming, and Head of Marketing and  Communications Jamie Tuohy leading on organisational marketing, communications and PR strategy. 

    What’s On at Seven Dial Playhouse this week

    FOXES


    20 May 2022 — 11 June 2022

    TICKETS Seven Dials Playhouse

    Disrupting beliefs and morals, and tearing the foundations of family apart, Foxes explores the complexities of sexual identity and the impact unleashing your true self can have on those around you.

    What is the ultimate sacrifice when societal pressures of religious doctrine and male standards collide with a liberal lifestyle? This fierce debut, shortlisted for the Alfred Fagon Award, shines a light on queerness within London’s Caribbean Community. When one kiss has the power to destroy everything, one young black man struggles to keep up. Drawn from experiences close to home, Flanders’ portrait of tormented masculinity and homosexuality is a detailed exploration into the cultural clash between upbringing and identity.
