Brand new from Accidental
Accidental presents From Elsewhere, our brand new series of plays raising consciousness about urgent issues faced by people from around the world. First in the series is a rehearsed reading of Could You Please Look into the Camera? by Mohammad Al Attar. Born and educated in Damascus and now living in Beirut, Al Attar’s work explores social relations, personal conflicts and everyday life. It questions the capacity of artists to make a difference in places of conflict. Could You Please Look into the Camera? focuses on the stories of Syrian citizens detained and interrogated by their government, reflecting the situation in Syria today with all the hesitancy and uncertainty about its future.
Donations are encouraged at this free performance with all proceeds going directly to a charity nominated by the playwright Mohammad Al Attar.
28th February at 9pm
The Galley, Lagan Quay
Call for scripts now closed...
Our annual call for scripts has now closed. Thank you to all the writers who've submitted their work to us we had the largest response we've ever had for our annual call with over 160 scripts being submitted to us!
We aim to respond to each script within 6 weeks of the February 2nd closing date, but due to the volume of submissions this may be delayed for some writers, so we apologise in advance.
Each year, Accidental aims to pull as many new plays off the page and onto their feet as humanly possible. Resources are thin on the ground no matter where you look, but deserving writing shouldn’t be left without ears and eyes because there isn’t a pile of cash to splash on elaborate main stage productions. Gorgeous theatre comes in boxes of all sizes and on shoestrings of all lengths.
We're looking forward to reading your work!
