2017 Writers’ Competition

The Arundel Festival Theatre Trail, conceived and presented by Drip Action Theatre Company, is now in its seventeenth year.

It performs at the end of August, on each of the Arundel Festival’s eight days, eight short plays at eight different venues all over Arundel – for example, in a community hall, a restaurant, a football club or Arundel Jailhouse.  An audience of over 2,000 came to see the eight 2016 Theatre Trail plays.

The Trail is firmly established as one of the major components in the Festival and is a great showcase for both new and established writers, both from the UK and beyond.
