Calling all independent theatre companies and performance makers: The Butterfly Club are calling for Expressions Of Interest to take part in their inaugural One Act Play festival, to be held from the 4th-9th of March, 2019. Successful applicants will be given a 4-6 night season to stage new or redeveloped theatre productions, with the venue costs to be underwritten by The Butterfly Club.

The Butterfly Club have a proud and long history of unearthing and supporting emerging theatre productions from Melbourne’s rich and varied independent theatre sector. Productions that are road-tested at the venue have frequently gone onto national and international tours and have been featured in state-wide and national showcases.

To recognise and further develop the sector, they are presenting a one-week, one-act play festival, calling for theatre makers and companies to put as many new and redeveloped works onto their stage as possible.

In order to be considered for inclusion, productions will need to be comfortable staging their work with minimal sets and props on a 4.5m x 2m stage. The upper limit for performance duration will be 60 minutes in total. Applications are now open, and will be accepted until 5pm on the 10th of December.
