Calling all illustrators

We want you to illustrate a Playella!

Any regular blog viewers will be familiar with our Playellas, but if you’re new, they are 12-line tiny plays that we publish right here as a little injection of new writing for our readers.

But theatre being the visual medium that it is, no Playella is complete without its accompanying illustration.

We’ve had some incredible drawings so far and are looking to expand our pool of illustrators so we can showcase a range of drawing styles (as well as all the wonderfully-different writing!)

The illustration brief is very open and can be as literal or as figurative as you like. Once you’ve read the play, it’s up to you! You can take a look at all the illustrations we’ve had so far here.

If that gets your creative juices flowing and you think you might be interested in having a go, get in touch!

Unfortunately we have no budget for our Playellas, but we will of course credit you and link to any blog/website/twitter you choose. We hope this will be a fantastic opportunity for both the writer and illustrator to get their work seen!

To apply please send examples of (or links to) your work to

Hope to hear from you soon!
