The Board is a free, monthly gathering of professional actors and industry creatives, and an opportunity for the regular sharing of short works to an audience of professional colleagues, friends and supportive theatre-lovers. We encourage discussion, connection and creative conversation in the bar downstairs, before and especially after the events. Hosted at The Lions Den, a great performance space and bar on Deansgate Mews, The Board is free to attend and performers do not need to submit a self-tape, just fill out a short form!


- Actors must be over-18 and resident in Greater Manchester.
- Writers must be aged over-18, resident in Greater Manchester and a member of Box of Tricks' PlayMakers Network (free to join).
- Share a monologue or duologue - we're looking to showcase extracts of new plays or short pieces (5 minutes max) for 1 or 2 actors. Selected pieces will be performed script-in-hand as part of a new play night at Lions Den in Manchester on Tuesday 11 October, 7pm.
Deadline for Submissions: Tuesday 4 October 2022 midday.
