FLY WITH US
Have you got a comedy script that deserves an airing?
If you are a woman writer you have a chance of getting on board, so send your script to Comedy 50:50
Though flights are currently grounded we're still reading scripts. At the Female Pilot Club we’re very much aware women are not the only group suffering from under-representation. We’re actively seeking scripts by BAME, working class female writers and those from other less well-represented groups in comedy.
If we think your script will work at the club, you could see it read by great actors. If we don’t think your script will work at the club, please don’t imagine we don’t think it’s good. The club lends itself to some scripts more than others, and we programme not just by shows we think will work in our unique productions but also by scripts which will partner well together.
Interested in performing or mentoring?
If you’re an actor who would like to come and support the cause we’d love to hear from you. The commitment is usually three to four hours on the day of the read-through, plus the script reading time. The work suits those who like the challenge of being flexible and changing things on the hoof and, of course, who love comedy.
Actors please email Comedy 50:50 and volunteer - you could find yourself in wonderful company.
Actors who’ve worked with us include Arabella Weir, Robert Webb, Kerry Howard, Jordan Stephens, Greg McHugh, Amelia Bullmore, Lou Brealey, Tracy Ann Oberman, Amer Chadha-Patel, Joe Johnsey, Vivienne Acheampong, Steve Oram, Sindhu Vee, and many many more.
If you're an experienced writer, male or female who would like to mentor a brilliant new writer, please contact us directly here. Or find out more.
Are you a comedy lover keen to see brand-new comedy scripts before they've made it to the telly?
Though all flights are currently grounded due to Covid-19, we're still looking for members, ready for when live shows are possible again.
Our shows often have very long waiting lists. If you JOIN THE CLUB via the button below, you'll be put on our mailing list, and be the first to hear about new shows, when it's safe to stage them again.
We are also working on ways to keep our unique club running under lock-down. We're currently developing a new mentoring scheme, so if you join the club you might find yourself with a private invitation to an exclusive online read.
But don't worry - if you do join the club we won't bombard you with emails.
