Creative writing competition: Gothic fiction

bda17e1b-94b1-4ba1-aca4-0c5197e38314

 

Theatre Cloud's Tell a Tale competition invites gothic stories to celebrate a new production of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

The new production will be touring theatres in the UK between February and May 2018.

Short gothic fiction that reflects contemporary fears is invited up to 500 words, using this quote from the play's script as inspiration: 'It might be possible, of course, that far from being one, we may possess two selves.'

At each city of town on the tour, a filmed reading will be made of a selected story, which be shortlisted. The overall winner will receive £300.

All the submissions will be uploaded to Theatre Cloud's website and every entrant will receive a £10 ticket offer on up to two tickets for a performance of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde at their nearest theatre.

Entry is free. The closing date is 21 April 2018.

For full details, see the website.
