Wanted: plays with human rights at the heart

Everyone Has the Right is a rolling script submission scheme (that means there is no deadline) for plays with human rights at their heart. It's a joint initiative between theatre company ICE AND FIRE and Amnesty International 
Writers are everyone who submits a script (full length theatre scripts only) will get written feedback on
  •  theatricality
  • dialogue 
  • characterisation 
  • whether it successfully explores a human rights story
The best plays will receive professional rehearsed readings in London. 
Those writers that ICE AND FIRE feel would benefit from longer term development will be paired with a dramaturg for more in-depth work on their script.
It sounds like a win win situation to me. Click on the title of this post for more information.International submissions welcome - as long as it's in English
