Applications to Direct And Produce Marlowe Society/ Bloomsbury Publishing (Methuen Drama) Other Prize Winner

We are looking for a director and producer team to stage an Other Prize winner (2016) : A Florilegium by Olivia Scott-Berry. This text is unique in fusing new writing with Shakespeare.

Please note we are looking for enthusiastic and reliable hands as this will involve pitching the production to venues.

Phone interviews to be held during the Easter Holidays.

Applicants should send a statement of interest to the Marlowe Society via our writer's rep Olivia:

-------------------------------------------------------Play Synopsis-------------------------------------------------------------------

A collaged representation of one person forming a makeshift (and often faulty) philosophy of life out of the works of Shakespeare. Informed by the early modern practice of keeping commonplace books (also known as Florilegia, after medieval collections of flowers), it rearranges lines from various Shakespeare plays around three connected tableaux. This abstractly presented narrative hopes to provoke wider reflection- both within and outside of the plays- about the themes it deals with: madness, love, age and animals.

If you would like to see a copy of the text please request via og262.

---------------------------------------------About The Other Prize-----------------------------------------------------

The Other Prize is a new writing Prize open to current students of the University of Cambridge. It is awarded for an original, unperformed play and candidates may enter more than one play. The Prize (for the playwright) is an award of £500 (put up by the John Kinsella/Tracy Ryan Trust), Adjudication is in two stages. A shortlist is selected by a panel consisting of one appointed by Churchill College, one by a member of the Education Studies with Drama staff, one by the Marlowe Society.

Final adjudication is by a representative of Bloomsbury Publishing (Methuen Drama).

Deadline: Friday 31st March 6:00pm

Summer Vacation


CUADC is taking HUMAN ANIMALS to the Edinburgh Fringe this summer!

First performed at the Royal Court Theatre in 2016, this will be one of the first amateur productions of Stef Smith's new play. Modern civilisation depends on an 'us' and 'them' culture. But what exactly are the consequences of exterminating 'the other'?

This production plans to permanently trap its six characters on a stage that resembles some kind of artificial enclosure. Here the audience will watch: man vs. animal, actor vs. actor, natural vs Nature. It's going to be messy...

Applications for PRODUCER should detail:
- Your experience.
- Why you think you would be suitable to produce this show at the Fringe.
(Team applications will also be accepted!)

Applications for ASSISTANT DIRECTOR should detail:
- Your experience.
- Some quick insight into you as a director.

More info on the play and our venue can found by following the link:

Please get in touch if you have any questions about the production or the application process.
