The Drip Action Theatre Trail takes place annually to coincide with Arundel Festival.

Plays are selected from hundreds of submissions received through our Writers’ Competition. The winner of this year’s Joy Goun Award went to Cathy Eva Bennet for About Abi. We also perform an evening production at The Victoria Institute, this year being The Children by Lucy Kirkwood.
