Calling all playwrights!

By The Black Box


We are today opening submissions for our summer season – TEN. 2016 is the tenth birthday of our mothership, The Black Box. To mark this, along with many other spankingly brilliant events (found at, our next season will be centred around the number TEN.

Plays must be anything from 15 – 50 minutes long, have fewer than 5 cast members, and be feasibly produced in a studio space on a Friday afternoon.

Feel free to interpret TEN in any way you choose – that’s the beauty of LunchBox.

Email Adam at [email protected]m to submit, or for more information. Play will be provisionally produced around June/July 2016.

The deadline for submissions is midnight on 31st MARCH 2016
