Play festivals and competitions

If you are in Newcastle on Friday 29 February, drop by Live Theatre to see Shortcuts, a marathon of 16 five minute plays. My play, ‘Pig Stew’, about three sisters who inherit a pig farm in Northumberland, will be one of the contestants. The audience have a chance to vote for their favourite short play. Starting at 6pm.

More good news on the play front is that ‘The Idol of Sarajevo’ is a semi-finalist in the Reverie New Generation Playwriting Contest in New York. The winner will receive a full staging in the big apple. Sarajevo has already been shortlisted for three other awards, so let’s hope this time it will be the bride and not just the bridesmaid.
