An update on the 2022 Summer Shorts

Our Summer Shorts show will run 10 – 13 August 2022

Curators Charlotte Benstead and Dave Hollander have received 21 submissions of original 10 -12 minute pieces from hopeful new and experienced writers – well done and thank you to all of you!

Sadly, we won’t be able to put on all 21 pieces – we only have space for 10, so Charlotte and Dave have had the unenviable task of reading through the submissions and choosing the best mix for the show, all on the theme of Bottle – having it, drinking from it, putting a message in it, the possibilities are many and varied!

They’ve just finished making their final selection and are now in touch with directors who will be allocated a script and can then begin the task of casting and rehearsing, starting with a call out for actors later in June – please wait for a call if you’d like to perform. There will be about 28 parts, so plenty of opportunities. If you’re interested in helping out backstage, or doing sound/lighting operation, please email theatrecommittee@southlondontheatre.co.uk

It will be a great opportunity for budding directors (and actors, or backstage helpers) to cut their teeth, so do watch out for further announcements and get the show dates in your diary – it’s always a great night!
