Open.Stage Voting Opens

Back in October last year we noted the Tron's new playwriting competition Open.Stage was inviting entries - with the winning play to receive a full commission and production later this year. In February a panel of judges narrowed down almost 300 entries to a shortlist of three: "Zurich" by Rob Drummond, "Sea and Land and Sky" by Abigail Doherty and "Plume" by J.C.Marshall.

Each of the these have since received further development and 'trailers' have now been created and posted on the Tron's website, where it will now be for the public to vote to determine the winner.

The contest certainly appears to have produced three interesting ideas and I think I'd quite happily go along to see any of them.

Voting is open now and closes at 5pm on 21st May.

Although the writers perhaps would have liked to be able to claim that they saw off 2997 other entries, it was actually just over 300 not 3000 that entered. A flattering but inaccurate typo...

Thanks for that - I've now corrected the figure (which I'd love to blame on a typo but was actually down to me misreading the Tron press release).
