The Arundel Festival Theatre Trail is firmly established as one of the major components in the Festival and is a great showcase for both new and established writers, from the UK and beyond.
Writers are invited to submit plays for the 2022 Trail, with plays 30 to 40 minutes long, easily staged, with minimum props and effects, and a maximum of four performers. There is no reading fee, and only one play may be submitted per entrant. The Festival is accepting email submissions from overseas as well.
Their reading committee will select the seven plays that will be performed, along with a specially commissioned piece, with the best submitted script receiving the Joy Goun award of £250 at the Theatre Trail launch in May 2022. Each successful playwright will receive a £200 writer’s fee.
The Arundel Festival Theatre Trail, conceived and presented by Drip Action Theatre Company, will be in its twentieth year in 2022. At the end of August, during each of the Festival’s eight days, eight short plays are performed at eight different venues all over Arundel – for example, in the Town Hall, a community centre, a restaurant and the Arundel Football Club.
All entries should be submitted to:
