Writing a Play?

The Arundel Festival Theatre Trail, created and presented by Drip Action Theatre Company, is calling for submissions of short plays to be performed in August 2010.

The eight-day festival takes place at the end of August, with eight short plays performed at eight vastly different venues throughout the town known for its wetlands centre and swans. In 2009 more than 1,800 people came to see performances hosted in impromptu theatres ranging from a living room to a kitchen, from a restaurant to a pub.

Plays can be on any subject or theme, and should be about 30 minutes long, suitable for daytime performance, with workable casting and prop options. You can only submit one play for consideration.

All entries should be submitted to by post to Drip Action Theatre Trail 2010, 1 Norfolk House, 28 High Street, Arundel, West Sussex, BN18 9AB.

Fee: There is no submission fee.

Deadline: December 31st 2009.

The reading committee will select the plays that will be performed, with each successful playwright receiving a £150 writer’s fee. The best submitted play will be awarded the Joy Goun award of £200 at the Theatre Trail launch in May 2009.
