Writers are invited to submit plays for the Arundel Festival Theatre Trail, conceived and presented by Drip Action Theatre Company, now in its fourteenth year. It performs at the end of August, on each of the Festival’s eight days, eight short plays at eight different venues all over Arundel – this year, for example, in a church hall, a kitchen, a ballroom and Arundel Jailhouse. An audience of nearly 2,000 came to see the eight 2013 Theatre Trail plays.
The Trail is firmly established as one of the major components in the Festival and is a great showcase for both new and established writers.
What to submit: Plays should be between 30 and 40 minutes long, with practicable casting, props and effects.
How to apply: One play only per entrant, in hard copy (not e-mail). Please enclose an SAE if you’d like your play returned.
All entries should be submitted to:
Drip Action Theatre Trail 2014
c/o SCGIS Ltd
65a High Street
