Pint-sized Plays are back again this year performing short 10 minutes plays and comedies in Tenby pubs. Having stopped in 2020 because of Covid, this enormously popular event will be taking place in four Tenby pubs on the 25th and 26th of September.
Once again, the plays are the winners from an international playwriting competition which this year saw well over 400 entries from the UK, the US, Canada, Australian and New Zealand. The ten winners include two from New Zealand, one from Canada, one from the US, one from Jersey and the remainder from the UK.
Thought-provoking, funny or downright hilarious… they’re all worth watching. And you can catch a selection of them, in selected Tenby pubs for free (well, the price of a drink!). The plays begin on Monday September 25th at 8.00 pm in The Crown, Lower Frog Street; and then at 9.00 pm in The Hope & Anchor, St Julian Street. On Tuesday, September 26th, the plays start at 8.00 pm in The Normandie, Upper Frog Street; and then at 9.00 pm in The Harbwr, St Julian Street.
After that, it’s off to Milford Haven to the Boulevard Theatre in Charles Street, where you can make an evening of it – and see all ten plays for a tenner with the bar open all evening! It starts at 7.30 on Friday September 29th and you can book online at visionartswales.com.
Then the following week, it’s the Pint-sized Plays Script Slam! This is when all the winners and runners up compete for the Pint-sized ‘Pint-Pot’ trophy on Saturday September 28th at Theatr Gwaun in Fishguard. It’s the show where you’ll not only see all ten plays but the overall winner of the 2023 Best Script award is decided by the audience – and is always great fun. At least four of the writers will be there in the audience too, hoping to win the coveted PintPot! Prizes are also awarded for Best Performance by Peter Richards, Artistic Director of Fluellen Theatre Company.
The Pint-sized Plays 2023 Script Slam starts at 7.30pm. For more information and to book tickets go to theatrgwaun.com
