Christmas Jumpers Theatre Night seeking short plays for charitable fundraising evening

Christmas Jumpers Theatre Night is being staged on Thursday 10th December to raise money for ITV’s Text Santa campaign, which supports Save The Children, Make-A-Wish UK and Macmillan Cancer Support.

What to submit:  They are seeking submissions of short plays for the evening. Plays should:

  • Have a Christmas theme (although this can be as loosely interpreted as you wish, and any genre is welcome)
  • Be between 5 and 15 minutes duration
  • Feature 4 or fewer characters
  • Be suitable for a tiny budget – so think simple, sparse set (e.g. a table and chairs), no or minimal technical requirements and minimal props & costumes
  • Be submitted as a PDF, Word or Pages document and include a title page and character descriptions

They intend to cast & direct the selected plays but welcome submissions from writers who wish to direct their own plays, or otherwise be as involved in the process as they wish.

As the evening is for charity they are unable to offer payment for submission or performance of plays, but can provide festive fun with mince pies, mulled wine and, of course, Christmas Jumpers!

How to apply:  Please submit plays or any queries to

Deadline:  Wednesday 4 November 2015 at 5pm
