The near-legendary Partington Theatre One Act Play Festival now in its 22nd 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 an adjudication by Martin Roche at the end of the evening.
After the plays on the Saturday night, awards for the whole week will be presented

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! Martin Roche, guest adjudicator from Greater Manchester Drama Federation,  will give an expert critique of each production and dish out certificates and silverware on the final night. martin-roche-adjudicator
