Following the success of the inaugural event in 2018, Hebden Bridge Little Theatre is pleased to announce our second One-Act Drama Festival.

Budding playwrights are invited to submit original, one act plays, with the winning scripts to be performed at the Festival, in July 2020. Owing to the popularity of the event last time, the Festival is being extended from two to three nights, to run from Thursday 23 – Saturday 25 July.

The competition is free to enter. There is no money prize, but the winner will receive a trophy, like the one above. We will also award small prizes for the audience favourite each night.

To enter, contact: Vaughan Leslie (, who will email you further information about the competition, including submission guidelines. Please note email entries will not be accepted.

The deadline for entries is Monday 6 January 2020.

We look forward to receiving another great selection of exciting and original short plays, and to making our second Festival, Play Write! 2020, even more successful than the first.

Go to and, for the story of our first Festival.
