The Ovation Awards (UK) is an event designed to bring new writing for theatre to the forefront. There is a lot of exciting new writing talent in the theatre industry which struggles to find a forum in which to be presented. These awards hope to provide a platform for writers to showcase their work, as well as an opportunity to receive feedback from industry professionals and theatre goers.
The Ovation Awards is a Planet Rabbit Productions event www.planetrabbit.co.uk
This national competition invites writers to submit short plays and monologues, each lasting approximately 7 minutes long. 10 pieces will be chosen and these selected finalists stage their plays at the Ovation Theatre Awards event in a bid to win one of the 3 awards up for grabs. Awards presented are Best New Writing, Best Actor, and Best Production. Two awards are selected by a panel of judges and one award chosen by the audience. For writers this is an ideal opportunity to showcase new writing and to meet with writers, actors, directors and judges at the event.
For an audience this is a great opportunity to see 10 short plays in one night, watch exciting new theatre and encourage fresh talent.
