No Lie Notts: Writing Competition

We have some very exciting news at Fowl Humour!

Working in association with Act 2 Playwriting, we proudly present ‘No Lie Notts‘ a fantastic opportunity for writers to submit work which will be put on in some memorable and unusual spaces around Nottingham. The winning scripts will be expanded with guidance from Act 2 and produced in association with Fowl Humour as a response to our first theatre production. But more on that later!
Check out the brief below and get your submissions in!


Act 2, in association with Fowl Humour, are looking for 10 minute monologues set in a public space – a pub, a bench, a café – to be performed in Nottingham in late May. We are inviting writers to send us scripts which exploring the theme of honesty and have a Nottingham voice at the centre of them. We want to hear writers’ honest opinions about the city, its spaces and what maybe normally goes unsaid.

The scripts will be read by a panel and the top 3 will be produced, all other receiving feedback from the panel. The winning 10 minute pieces will be expanded with support from Act 2 and form part of an exciting week of theatre in Hockley and the Lace Market.

The brief

A script of no more than 6 pages for a solo performer with zero to minimal tech set in a public space in Nottingham, that could be in Hockley or the Lace Market.

Please send these via email to act2playwriting@gmail.com by 5pm on Friday 10th April.

Happy writing!
