Playwriting Competition

Swansea University’s Drama, English and Comedy societies have put their heads together to offer you a playwriting competition!

The brief is:

To write a one-act play, approximately 5-10 minutes in length (about 1500-3000 words). Your play can deal with any topic or theme and have a cast list as long or short as you like.

Submission date: 9th December, by 11:59pm.

From the submissions, around 8-10 plays will be performed at the end of January. It is free to enter if you are a member of Drama, English or Comedy Society. If you are not a member, you can either join by contacting a member of the committee or pay a £3 entry fee.

The chosen plays will be replacing the usual Second Semester published play proposals, and we will therefore be looking for directors and will be holding auditions for the casts. Keep your eyes peeled for these opportunities!

For any more information, or to submit your work please email:

Best of luck!
