Project Description

In September 2017, Hebden Bridge Little Theatre launched a new play-writing competition – Play Write! Budding playwrights were invited to submit original, half-hour plays, with a cast of six actors or less, and with simple staging requirements.

Over sixty, half-hour plays were submitted, and four plays were chosen to receive their world premières at the Little Theatre:

Size Zero by Dave Payne, directed by Ray Riches, Stranger by Peter Bird, directed by Vaughan Leslie, Kelsi and Sam by Amelia Stephenson, directed by Jenny Gore, and Going Country by Theresa Sowerby, directed by Katrina Heath.

On Saturday night, the four winning writers saw their plays performed to a packed house, and Amelia Stephenson took the Judge’s Award for her witty and charming romantic comedy, Kelsi and Sam.
