An update on the 2022 Summer Shorts

18 May 22

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 to all of you!


Sadly, we won’t be able to put on all 21 pieces – we’ll only have space for 9 or 10, so Charlotte and Dave now have 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!


Once they’ve made their final selection and let the writers know, they’ll be putting a call out for directors (we hope around mid-June) who will be allocated a script and can then begin the task of casting and rehearsing, starting with a call out for actors a bit later in June.


It will be a great opportunity for budding directors (and actors) 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!
