Open script call by Blazing Hyena

Edinburgh-based Blazing Hyena Theatre Company, hot from its production of Green Tea, has put out an open call for Edinburgh-set scripts.

The company is looking for twenty-minute scripts or excerpts of longer works (about 20 pages maximum). Four will be chosen to be performed as part of an event planned by the company for the Spring.

Blazing Hyena is requesting submissions that “give a modern representation of life in and around Edinburgh, and attempt to bring a more cinematic experience to the stage.”

All genres and writing styles will be considered, and the company promise that all submissions will be given feedback. The four chosen pieces will then be matched with a director, and cast accordingly.

The company core is creative director Jack Elliot and producer Lara Wauchope. It first came to real notice with a production of Death is the New Porn at the 2014 fringe. They currently work with a range of artists including their latest production which was a collaboration with the Village Pub Theatre’s Sophie Goode, who adapted Green Tea.

Wauchope told Æ: “We can’t wait to work with the many talented writers of Edinburgh and beyond. New writing is our passion. We aim to give a platform for their work and connect them with a director and cast that are new to them, thus expanding the network of theatre talent in our home city.”

Describing itself as: “a dynamic company with a unique approach to theatre” on its website, the company works to introduce up-and-coming talent both on-stage and behind the scenes. The company describes its own productions as ones that give a “modern representation of life in and around Edinburgh, and attempt to bring a more cinematic experience to the stage.”

Deadline for submissions is 12 noon on Monday January 9 2017.

Anyone wishing to submit a script should email it to: jack.blazinghyena@gmail.com.
