New Writing Festival

oneACTS 2018 – Be part of it!

Performance dates: week beginning Monday, April 23 2018

The cornerHOUSE oneACTS play festival is now in its 12th year. Since then it has gone from strength to strength, with the quality and quantity of entries increasing annually.

The oneACTS is not just about great, original playwriting; it is about encouraging everyone to get involved in all aspects of theatre. Anyone can enter a play, volunteer to direct or produce, audition to act or become part of the backstage or front of house crew.

The festival provides an opportunity for new directors to try their hand at a short play in a supportive environment. It also offers numerous acting opportunities, without the heavy commitment of full-length plays, as well as involving volunteers in helping to organise the festival whether it be building the sets, working on the sound and lighting, stage managing, assisting with wardrobe and props… the list goes on!

The cornerHOUSE is a very open environment which actively welcomes and involves all newcomers. So if you’d like to get involved in the oneACTS, in any capacity whatsoever, do get in touch. We’d love to hear from you!

Please pass this information on to anyone else you know who might be interested.

All writers/directors/producers/actors and those interested in being part of the crew should email
