A Festival of New Writing

 The Guild of Players presents A Festival of New Writing


Short plays by local writers will be performed script-in-hand in the informal atmosphere of the theatre’s Studio.

The Festival has grown out of successful play readings at the Guild of Players’ Friday night events in the Studio. This provides acting opportunities for members unable to commit to a full Main House production. 


The plays will be performed on two weekends (31st May/Ist June and 7th/8th June), starting at 7.30pm with the bar open from 6.30pm.

Please check the 'What's On' section of the website for updates and to book tickets.
