The 2017 Winners!
We're absolutely delighted to say we now have our six winning plays for our 2017 competition, together with our four runners up - and some which didn't quite make it but are highly commended. Check them all out by clicking the button below. Now the plays will be cast and rehearsed ready to be performed in pubs in Pembrokeshire, starting September 25, and all ten plays will compete for the coveted Pint-pot at the 2017 Script Slam to be held at Theatr Gwaun in Fishguard on September 30. All ten plays will also be considered for publication in another volume of scripts.
Thank you one and all for entering the competition in this our tenth anniversay year - celebrating a whole decade of encouraging new writing and bringing the best short plays to a wider audience.
NEW! Pint-sized Plays Writing Weekend
We're pleased to announced a weekend writing course in October where writers, with expert tuition, can compelete a 10 minute Pint-sized play or a scene from a longer play and see it performed by professional actors at the end of the weekend.
“Pint-sized Plays is a fabulous antidote to a world which had consigned potentially great playwrights to the bookshelves of artistic directors like me rather than in front of the audiences where their originality can be heard. They are intensely playful and often the brief to be brief has liberated writers and given them a boldness of style that might have been diminished in a full-length play.” Gemma Bodinetz Artistic Director, Liverpool Everyman Theatre
Pintsized Plays is one of the leading international competition for short plays of up to 10 minutes. Winning plays are performed in selected pubs in Pembrokeshire and the six winning entries and four runners up then go on to be performed at our Script Slam at Theatr Gwaun in Fishguard where the audience get to vote for their favourite script - and the winner will walk away with the coveted Pint-pot (with a half-pint for the runner up). On top of that all ten plays will be considered for publication in our next volume of scripts. The latest volume - No 4 - is now published - click here for details
Each volume contains the scripts of around 20 winning plays and runners up from the first nine years of Pint-sized Plays. And, since publication of Volume 1, several plays have already been performed by other theatre companies. See the 'Publications' tab for further details and to make sure of your copies.
We're proud to say that the fourth volume of Pint-sized Plays scripts is now published. In it you'll find the winners and runners up from the last couple of years. Order yours now direct from us and save money!
