· The organisers reserve the right to cut scripts without notification where necessary. E.g. if a play is running significantly longer than 60 seconds, we may delete some small lines if their intention is communicated elsewhere in the script.
· Gi60 festivals are recorded and made available for viewing on the Gi60 YouTube Channel. To view past plays: Gi60 Channel YouTube
PLEASE NOTE: due to the high volume of plays we receive each year we are unable to write to individual playwrights to notify them if their play has not been selected.
**We receive between 700-900 submissions each year; by including the text of the play in the body of the email, it saves play readers time to not have to open attachments. If your play is selected, the attachments in Word/RTF make it easier for us to then share those scripts with the creative teams.
