How much drama or comedy can you pack into a five or ten minute play? Pint-sized Plays is your opportunity to show just how imaginative and original you can be. It can be funny, it can be sad… if it can be performed in a pub, with two or three characters, you could be a winner of Pint-sized Plays.
After last years successful Theatre Trails, the Steyning Festival and The Company are looking for 4 – 6 unperformed short plays (maximum length 1 hour), from writers local to Sussex, Hampshire, Kent and Surrey. They will be performed as rehearsed readings at different venues in Steyning, as part of the Steyning Festival 2008 on 24th May and 8th June. All plays need to be submitted by 20th January 2008.
If you search Samuel French’s online there is an entry of “Rocky Horror Show” by Richard O’Brian. As far as I’m aware this musical has never been available for amateur before. Who’s going to be the first?
