CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR NEW GAELIC PLAY COMMISSION AND PRODUCTION

A group of Scotland’s leading creative organisations have joined forces for the commissioning of a new Gaelic production.

The National Theatre of Scotland in partnership with A Play, A Pie and A Pint, MG ALBA and BBC ALBA, supported by Bòrd na Gàidhlig, are pleased to announce an exciting stage production opportunity.

The bodies are inviting proposals for a new Gaelic language play or existing unproduced Gaelic language play, which fit the following criteria, for a commission and production at Òran Mòr's A Play, A Pie and A Pint, in spring 2017.

Guidelines

  • • The play must be inspired by the word: Miann/Desire
  • • It can be any genre: drama, comedy drama etc… but please refer to the information on A Play, A Pie and A Pint below
  • • The play must be between 45-50mins in playing length
  • • For up to 3 performers
  • • The selected play/proposal, will be commissioned in July 2016, for production in the week commencing 20th February 2017 . Rehearsals begin w/c 30 January 2017
  • • Deadline for submissions is midnight on June 30th 2016

The selected play/proposal will be co-commissioned by the National Theatre of Scotland and MG ALBA, securing stage rights for the National Theatre of Scotland and including an enhanced fee to secure broadcast media rights.

Caroline Newall, Director of Artistic Development, National Theatre Scotland, said: “We are really pleased to be working with A Play, A Pie and A Pint again on the production of a new Gaelic drama, following the successful co-production of Whisky Galore/Uisge-Beatha Gu Leòr by Iain Finlay MacLeod in 2015. This is the first time we will have collaborated with MG ALBA and BBC ALBA, and are delighted to join forces to collectively increase commission and production opportunities for Scotland’s contemporary Gaelic writers and plays.”

Iseabail Mactaggart, Director of Development and Partnership at MG ALBA, said: “MG ALBA is committed to nurturing the next generation of Gaelic writing talent and it is pleasing to have this opportunity to work with our fellow creative bodies for the formation of a new Gaelic play.

“The writer behind the winning proposal will have the chance to move their ideas from paper to stage and work with some inspirational figures in the process. It is also hoped that after the stage-play has taken place that there may be an opportunity to move the idea onto a broadcast platform.

“As has been demonstrated by MG ALBA’s backing for young writers on BBC ALBA’s Bannan and our support for industry training and education, there are opportunities for aspiring creative talent to gain a foothold in the sector and we hope this latest initiative will provide another opportunity for a talented writer to make their mark.”

COTHROM AIRSON COIMISEAN DEALBH-CHLUICH ÙIR

Tha Tèatar Nàiseanta na h-Alba, an co-bhoinn ri A Play, A Pie and A Pint, MG ALBA agus BBC ALBA, le taic bho Bhòrd na Gàidhlig, a’ tabhann cothrom dealbh-chluich ùir a riochdachadh.

Tha sinn a’ sireadh thagraidhean airson dealbh-chluich ùir ann an Gàidhlig no airson dealbh-chluich Ghàidhlig nach deach fhathast a riochdachadh, a tha a’ freagairt air na slatan-tomhais a leanas agus airson a riochdachadh aig A Play, A Pie and A Pint aig an Òran Mòr, as t-Earrach 2017.

Stiùireadh

  • • Feumaidh an dealbh-chluich a bhith brosnaichte leis an fhacal: Miann
  • • Faodaidh e a bhith ann an gnè sam bith: dràma, dràma comadaidh msaa…ach gabhaibh aire air an fhiosrachadh mu A Play, A Pie and A Pint gu h-ìseal
  • • Feumaidh an dealbh-chluich a bhith eadar 45-50m a dh’fhaid
  • • Airson suas ri 3 cleasaichean
  • • Thèid an dealbh-chluich a choimiseanadh san Iuchar 2016 airson a thaisbeanadh san t-seachdain a’ tòiseachadh 20 Gearran 2017. Thèid ruith-thairis a dhèanamh san t-seachdain a’ tòiseachadh 30 Faoilleach 2017.
  • • Ceann-là airson tagraidhean: meadhan oidhche, 30 Ògmhios 2016

Thèid an dealbh-chluich a cho-choimeasanadh le Tèatar Nàiseanta na h-Alba agus MG ALBA, a’ dìon chòraichean stèidse airson Tèatar Nàiseanta na h-Alba, le maoin airson còraichean mheadhanan craolaidh a ghleidheadh cuideachd.

Thuirt Caroline Newall, Stiùiriche Leasachadh Ealain, Tèatar Nàiseanta na h-Alba: “Tha sinn air leth toilichte a bhith ag obair cuide ri A Play, A Pie and A Pint a-rithist agus air riochdachadh dràma Gàidhlig ùr, a’ leantainn air a’ cho-riochdachadh shoirbheachail de Whisky Galore/Uisge-Beatha Gu Leòr le Iain Finlay MacLeòid ann an 2015. ’S e seo a’ chiad uair a tha sinn air co-obrachadh le MG ALBA agus BBC ALBA agus tha sinn cho toilichte a bhith ag obair còmhla gus àrdachadh a dhèanamh ann an cothroman coimiseanaidh agus riochdachaidh airson sgrìobhadairean agus deilbh-chluich co-aimsireil Gàidhlig.”

Thuirt Iseabail Nic an t-Sagairt, Stiùiriche Leasachaidh agus Co-bhanntachdan MG ALBA: “Tha MG ALBA dealasach a thaobh a bhith ag àrach an ath ghinealach de luchd-sgrìobhaidh Gàidhlig tàlantach agus tha e taitneach an cothrom seo a bhith againn obrachadh le ar co-obraichean cruthachail ann a bhith a’ cruthachadh dealbh-chluich Ghàidhlig ùir.

“Bidh cothrom aig an sgrìobhadair soirbheachail na smuaintean aca fhaighinn bhon duilleig chun àrd-ùrlair fhad ’s aig an t-aon àm obrachadh le daoine brosnachail. Tha e an dòchas an dèidh na dealbh-cluiche gum bi cothrom ann am beachd fhaighinn gu ùrlar craolaidh.

“Tha fianais againn le MG ALBA a’ cur taic ri sgrìobhadairean òga air dràma BBC ALBA, Bannan, agus ar taic airson trèanadh agus foghlam gnìomhachais, gu bheil cothroman ann dhaibhsan aig a bheil tàlant ceum fhaighinn a-staigh air a’ ghnìomhachas agus thathas an dòchas gum bi an iomairt seo na cothrom eile do sgrìobhadair tàlantach eile adhartas a dhèanamh.”
