The near-legendary Partington Theatre One Act Play Festival now in its 23rd year. Not to be missed!
Come and enjoy a great week of One-Act plays. Each evening there will be 2 or 3 short plays with a short critique by guest adjudicator Martin Roche at the end of the evening.

The theatre bar opens at 7 0’clock and the curtain goes up at 7.30 each evening. Every night a different programme of very varied one-act plays presented by theatre groups from all over the area and beyond.  New writing rubs shoulders with famous classics.  Lots to talk about!  Our guest expert Martin Roche will sum up the week and hand out certificates and silverware after the final play on Saturday night.

Tickets cost just £3 per evening or £10 for a bargain festival ticket covering all  5 evenings. Tickets can be purchased at the theatre bar or just come along and pay on the night. (Seats are not reserved)

Aims and rules of the festival can be seen here.
