The Old Rep Theatre has been running for 110 years and with over a century of history it would be foolish to think that we don’t have a few skeletons in our closet. To celebrate the spookiest time of the year we are running a writing competition that only the bravest vampire would sink their teeth into.
We are searching for ghoulish ghost tales, hell-bound horror stories, petrifying poems, spellbinding songs or any other Halloween hauntings you wish to write about.
Submit your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org before the clock strikes midnight on Sunday 20 August.

- Between 1 and 3 performers
