The deadline for entries  to Play Write! 2020 has now passed. There has been a brilliant response to our second one-act play-writing competition, with over 80 plays submitted.

We now have the mammoth task of reading them all, and deciding the four finalists to be performed at the Festival in July. These plays will be announced at the beginning of April.

The overall winner of Play Write! 2020 will be chosen by three judges who have made a career in theatre and television. The winner of the competition will be revealed at the Festival, which runs from Thursday 23 to Saturday 25 July 2020.

In April, we will be holding casting auditions for all the plays, details of which will be advertised on the website and Facebook. If you would like to act, or participate in any way, contact the Festival Organiser, Vaughan Leslie (07985 189824; vaughanleslie@hotmail.com).
