A WEE COUNTY theatre is looking for budding writers to submit their work for a chance to have their work shown on stage.

The Alman Dramatic Club is also looking to build on its 80-year history and is inviting new writers in Clackmannanshire and across Forth Valley to submit their work.

The top five will be given readings at the theatre in front of a live audience and the outright winner will have a full production at the Coach House.

Plays should be set in Scotland and have a contemporary theme. The deadline for submission is October 31.

A unique 63 seat performance venue, the Coach House Theatre was built in the early 1900s as the coach house for the Patons of Inglewood. It later became a garage for the family’s cars and stood empty for a number of years.

In 1957 it was transformed into a theatre and in the years since more than 200 full length plays have entertained the audiences.
