We hope to run a WRiTEON Festival Launch Party in September, where you will be able to find out more about the festival and what acting and directing opportunities there will be.

The Shortlist

The six other plays that made the shortlist but were not selected to be staged as part of the Festival are:

A Mandarin Remembers by David Hutchison

Canopy by Rachael Carnes

Headhog by Tom Jensen

Member by Hugo Chiarella

The Contract by Trish Rawson

The quality of these shortlisted plays was so high that WRiTEON will be showcasing these to audiences as well in the form of staged readings or table readings in the run up to the Festival.
