2019 Writing Competition is now open
Winning is only the beginning!
One of the leading international competitions for short (5-10 minute) plays, Pint-sized Plays is now in its eleventh year, and over 100 winners have seen their plays performed in the Tenby Arts Festival and at the Script Slam in September where the audience vote for the overall Best Script each year. On top of which, many of our writers have subsequently seen their plays performed in countless venues worldwide. indeed, many of our writers have gone on to write longer successful pieces and cite Pint-sized Plays as a springboard to launching their playwriting careers. You can enter now - the closing date is May 31, 2019.
“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!
