Our 2018 Competition is now open!
We're delighted to announce that the 2018 Pint-sized Plays competition is now open! Closing date is May 31 and we hope to announce the six winners and four runners up in July, ready for performance at the Tenby Arts Festival in six pubs on September 24 and 25 and then all ten plays go on to the Script Slam at Theatr Gwaun in Fishguard to compete for the coveted Pint-pot as judged by the audience on the night. On top of which, all winning entries will be considered for publication in Volume 5 of Pint-sized Plays!

“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!
