Belper Short Play Festival

Belper Short Play Festival

After a four year break the Belper Short Play Festival is back in 2019.

The last Short Play Festival in 2014 attracted over 300 entries and the winning play was written by New York resident, John Doble.

"The return of the Short Play Festival is by public demand. Already there is a lot of interest and it's going to be a great asset in 2019," said George Gunby, Belper Arts Festival Co-Ordinator. "I hope that performances will take place in pubs, cafes and other unusual venues as well as during the proposed three week drama festival proposed by Captive Audience Theatre."

Writers can submit scripts for performance between 1 August and 30 November 2018. There will be two categories for entries ? Under 16 years old and Over 16 years of age.

"In addition to performing as many plays as possible it is hoped to run writing workshops and readings," said Mr. Gunby. "Whilst much of the Short Play event is in place I'm open to ideas and innovations."
