Drip Action Theatre Company seeking submissions for 2016 Arundel Festival Theatre Trail (paid)

Writers are invited to submit plays for the 2016 Arundel Festival Theatre Trail.

The Arundel Festival Theatre Trail, conceived and presented by Drip Action Theatre Company, is now in its sixteenth 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 community hall, a restaurant, a football club and Arundel Jailhouse. An audience of over 2,000 came to see the eight 2015 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, from the UK and beyond.

What to submit:  Plays should be between 30 and 40 minutes long, with practicable casting, props and effects.
