Royal Court Young Writers Festival 2012

If you are under 26 and have a story to tell, write it for us and send it into the Young Writers Festival competition. Your play can be about absolutely anything and take any style. The winning plays will have full professional productions at the Royal Court Theatre from January to March 2012.

Pint Sized Plays

  • Scripts should be capable of being staged in a pub with a running time of between 5 and 10 minutes.
  • Scripts should require two or three characters only with minimal additional props.
  • The top ten winning plays will be performed in pubs throughout Pembrokeshire, starting Tenby Festival week which this year is 19th and 20th September.  All ten plays will then be performed at the Script Slam in Theatr Gwaun, Fishguard, where the audience get to vote for their favourite script – and the winner gets to walk away with the coveted ‘Pint-Pot’ award – with a ‘Half-Pint’ award for the runner-up!
