Pint‐Sized Plays


2020 Results

We're very pleased to be able to announce the winners and runners up in this year's competition. There was enormous number of very good plays entered, so our six winners and four runners up deserve a big pat on the back to have beaten so many to the top slots.  Because of the current situation it has not been possible to perform the plays as we normally would, so we've taken the decision to video them put them up on YouTube - so they'll actually get a much larger audience than usual! Not only that but we'll be having a Virtual Script Slam which anyone (as long as they've registered) can vote in. Voting closes on November 5 and we'll announce the results shortly after.


The six winning plays are, in alphabetical order: 

Along Any Minute by William Andrew Patterson

Arm Wars by Chris Morrow

Dating with Dostoyevsky by Chloe Banks

How Did We Do? by Angela Jane Pressland

Love in Lockdown? by Bart Meehan

The Next Ivan Sharansky by Jim Geoghan

And the four runners up are:
A Little Scotchie by John Spooner

Crossed Wires by Rob Taylor

Dinner & Destiny by Dennis Jones

My Hero by Tony Domaille


See them all here!


We're very pleased to say that the results reflect the international nature of the Pint-sized Plays writing competition too, with winners from the USA,  Northern Ireland and Australia as well as the UK!
