What a response!
The Pint-sized Plays 2020 writing competition is now closed
We're delighted to say that the response to this year's competition has been excellent - being locked down obviously has a very positive effect on playwriting! Now the tough job of judging the entries begins. We hope to be able to announce the winners in July, and, if the situation allows, the six winners or four runners up will get to be performed at the Tenby Arts Festival in September and go on to the Script Slam, where the audience vote for their favourite script and the overall winner gets a Pint-pot - with a half-pint for the runner-up!
And, in the event of the festival having to be cancelled due to coronavirus, we'll be awarding cash prizes to the 10 winning scripts!
“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 5 - is now published - click here for details
