At a recent event I had the pleasure of meeting Derek Webb, creator of Pint-Sized Plays, with whose blessings I pass on the following opportunity:
The 2012 Pint-sized Plays writing competition is now open!
Now in its fifth year, Pint-sized Plays has grown to become a premier international competition for short plays. So how much drama or comedy can be packed into a five or ten minute play? Pint-sized Plays is your opportunity to show just how imaginative and original you can be. It can be funny, it can be poignant... if it can be performed in a pub, with two or three characters, you could be one of the six winners (or four runners up) of Pint-sized Plays 2012!
The closing date is May 31st 2012 and we're now able to accept all scripts as uploaded files with payment by PayPal. The winning plays will be announced by early August and will be performed in pubs throughout Pembrokeshire, starting 24th and 25th September during Tenby Festival week. All ten plays will then be performed at the Script Slam in 4U, Fishguard on October 6th, 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!
On top of which, selected plays will be recorded and broadcast as radio plays on an internet radio station: audiobookradio.net. To find out more, go to www.pintsizedplays.org.uk
