Manchester's 24:7 Theatre Festival has discovered it has quite an international following.
Individuals from as far afield as the United States, Ireland, Georgia, Iran, Russia, Australia, Brazil, Croatia, Cyprus, France, Thailand, Tunisia and Finland, not to mention lots of people in the UK, have all downloaded application forms and notes about entering plays into Manchester's 24:7 Theatre Festival 2009.
The festival is an annual showcase of new writing held in Manchester city centre every year. Now in its sixth year, the event will run from 20th – 26th July and organisers are keen to hear from those wishing to get involved.
