10 Minutes To...

New plays from new voices

10 Minutes to... is the latest addition to Live Theatre’s Live Lab programme, giving writers and directors the opportunity to forge new creative partnerships, be showcased at Live Theatre and bring their work to a new audience. 

How it works

10 Minutes to... is a Live Lab scheme that is open to budding playwrights. It’s a showcase for some of the region's best new playwrights and directors.

Writers submit plays to our Literary Team that respond to a specific theme. A selection of these are picked to be performed as part of 10 Minutes to… The chosen plays are produced, rehearsed and performed  in just one intensive weekend at Live Theatre. 

Keep an eye on our website for more information on how to get involved in future 10 Minutes to…

Applications will reopen in 2017.
