  • Writer's pictureSilent Uproar


After a hugely successful first scratch night last month, held in partnership with Middle Child and supported by Richard Bean, Out Loud returns on Saturday 9 May.

This time the sharing will take place upstairs at Hull Truck Theatre, as part of the annual Grow Festival and ahead Middle Child's homecoming performance of The Canary and the Crow.

Free tickets for the night will go 'on sale' nearer the time, but in the meantime we need writers and, once again, we are looking for four fifteen-minute excerpts to perform script-in-hand.

Anything goes form and content-wise, but we are particularly interested in stories about Hull and the north. We can only accept scripts that can be performed by no more than four performers.

How to apply

Please send a sample of no more than 10 pages of your script to before 10am on Monday 23 March.

Names will be removed from scripts and passed to Middle Child artistic director, Paul Smith, and Silent Uproar artistic director, Alex Mitchell, to be read anonymously.

All applicants will hear whether they have been selected or not by Friday 24 April.
