You know whats the problem with theatre here in Malaysia? There are not enough good scripts? Or even worse there not enough writers out there. So for those who are keen on giving a go at scriptwriting. Take a look at this.

The Oral Stage (TOS) will be staging a series of short plays in a single production, slated for July/August. We're looking for people who are interested in writing a short play (or several, if you're up for it) of about 20 minutes, as well as people who are interested in directing a short play.

This production falls under TOS' Quikstage division, which focuses on nurturing new talents, providing a space for people to have their first taste of the performing arts and for more experienced practitioners to gain further experience and to try different things.

Interviews for the positions will be held on Sat 19th and Sun 20th Apr. Please e-mail people@theoralstage.com ASAP to book your slot. Deadline for registration is Fri 18th Apr at 11.59pm.
