Writers are invited to submit plays for the 2015 Arundel Festival Theatre Trail (£250 prize)

The Arundel Festival Theatre Trail, conceived and presented by Drip Action Theatre Company, is now in its fifteenth 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 a community hall, a restaurant, a football club and Arundel Jailhouse. An audience of over 2,000 came to see the eight 2014 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 you get:  A reading committee will select the plays that will be performed, with the best submitted script receiving the Joy Goun award of £250 at the Theatre Trail launch in May 2015.  Each successful playwright will receive a £150 writer’s fee.

What to submit:  Plays should be between 30 and 40 minutes long, with practicable casting, props and effects.  One play only per entrant, in hard copy (not e-mail). Please enclose an SAE if you’d like your play returned.

How to apply:  All entries should be submitted to:
