7:25 pm


Please note these dates are provisional, depending upon the number of entries.

The near-legendary Partington Theatre One Act Play Festival.

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.  A 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.
