Having stopped in 2020 because of Covid, the enormously popular Pint-sized Plays are back in Tenby this September.
Performed in four Tenby pubs on September 25 and 26, Pint-sized Plays are short 10 minutes plays and comedies.
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 25 at 8pm in The Crown, Lower Frog Street; and then at 9pm in The Hope & Anchor, St Julian Street.
On Tuesday, September 26, the plays start at 8pm in The Normandie, Frog Street; and then at 9pm 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 7.30pm on Friday, September 29 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 will then compete for the Pint-sized ‘Pint-Pot’ trophy on Saturday September 28 at Theatr Gwaun in Fishguard. This is the show where the audience get to vote for their favourite script and is always great fun.
You’ll not only see all ten plays but and the overall winner of the 2023 Best Script award is decided by the audience. And there will be some of the writers there 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 .
