Write a play and see it performed in your town!

Sheer Drop Theatre who produced Lost and Found for the 2012 Maze festival are back and looking for short plays from local writers for the Maze Festival in August 2013! If you’ve always wanted to write a play, if you’ve already written lots of plays or if you’ve just got an interesting story about the town to tell then get writing! It doesn’t matter how old you are, what your job is or what colour your hair is…


The Rules:

The plays should:

  • be no more than 10 minutes long (approximately 10-12 pages of A4)
  • require no more than 3 actors
  • reach us by 1st April 2013

The plays should be inspired by Saffron Walden or Bridge End Gardens, as this is where they will be performed. We are interested in plays that also take inspiration from mazes, the local area or its history. Sheer Drop Theatre will select 4 plays for production, and will offer support and development throughout. If you want more information, please contact Tom Latter and Morag Sims at
