oneACTS 2012 – playwrights

Monday, April 16 to Saturday, April 21 2012 at 7.45pm

Have you ever written a short play that deserves to be performed? Or have you always wanted to? If so, the cornerHOUSE annual one act plays festival needs you.

We are looking for people who would like to create a play for the oneACTS 2012, our week-long showcase of original writing which will take place from Monday, April 16 until Saturday, April 21 2012.
Don’t worry if you haven’t attempted anything like this before. You can find all the information you need on our website at under oneACTS 2012 – guidance or email
This will be the eighth year the cornerHOUSE in Douglas Road, Surbiton, has run the festival, which has become a well established and highly respected event in the local arts scene.
The plays need to be short – 15 to 30 minutes long – so if you have an original idea and would like to see it staged, why not have a go?
A number of plays will be selected by a panel of judges out of all those received – and yours may well be the lucky one – and even it isn’t, you will still get feedback to help you with your future writing.
The deadline for submission of plays is Sunday, October 30 2011. After that, directors will be chosen, actors will be cast, and your work will come to life on stage.
Guidance notes on how to submit your plays can be found on our website.
So get your thinking caps on, put fingers to keyboard, and start writing – we are looking forward to reading your play.
Please email your plays to
