For the last edition – Fourplay presents THEM – playwrights were challenged to write a 20-minute play using no more or less than the four props provided to them by visual and conceptual artists and artisans.

This time we want the stimulus to be music.

We are looking for four original, instrumental compositions between two and four minutes in length that will work together to provide the soundtrack to the performances. Playwrights will be allowed to use either a segment of the music or the entire length of the track, but will have to use all four pieces in their play.

The compositions will be chosen by how they compliment one another. They are not limited by genre or style: we are looking for four interesting, inspiring pieces of music that mesh well together to be interpreted by playwrights.

To submit a piece of music or to ask any questions, email

The submissions deadline is 24th December 2016.

We will unveil the music online shortly after selecting the final four pieces. Writers will then have a matter of weeks to submit a pitch, and once we have selected four plays to be performed, they will have just over a month to rehearse their shows. Fourplay presents TIDE will take place in Paris between 21st and 22nd April 2017.
