Synopsis

 Eight new playwrights

 Eight exciting pieces of new theatre

 Eight minutes each


Are you a writer? Or are you an aspiring writer? Have you started a new piece of work but been unsure how to shape it or move it forward?


Well here are a few constraints which might provoke creativity. Can you write a short piece for 1, 2 or 3 actors? It must have a minimum of set and- here’s the thing- must last for just eight minutes.


To add to the mix, it needs to reflect in some way the concept of ‘once in a blue moon’, so that the evening has a real feeling of cohesion.


In 2022 Ilkley Playhouse will host its second playwriting festival to offer writers the chance to put their original, previously unpublished short work on stage. The festival will take place in our Wildman (studio) theatre. There is also the chance to be published, if you win or have a splendid entry. Have a look at our 2020 publication.
