A Dozen Daring Dramas (DDD)


A new challenge for the hardcore dramatist.


2021 is the year of drama writing, and we have just the challenge for you.

No more 2-page dialogues or 5-minute monologues, this time we are writing 12 full-length works of dramatic writing in 1 year.

Every month you will get a new brief, and have to complete a full-length piece before clock strikes midnight on the final day of the month. Each brief will challenge you to write in a different style, with different limitations, ideas and processes. 

There won't be different routes, and you don't have to submit anything, but if you don't submit, you will be asked every month if you want to stay on the mailing list.

What do we classify as a full-length piece? Well, as usual, at TLC we don't judge or argue with you about your definitions - if you are happy to call your submission 'full-length' - so are we.

As always with our challenges, a financial obligation is not necessary in order to register, but if you do choose to contribute to the pot, we have a different system to manage money distribution.


If you complete all 12 plays

You will receive a share of the final pot as per our usual T&Cs (i.e. the final pot, minus 25% to help cover our costs).


If you don't complete the year

For every month you complete and deliver, you will be entitled to receive 5% of your initial contribution, which you can collect the following month. That means that if (for example) you complete 5 months, you can ask for 25% of your initial investment in June.
