More success for Stephen Connolly, who has made the long list of the Chesil Theatre, Winchester’s, ten minute playwriting Competition. Steve is now waiting to hear if his play ‘Ten Years’ will be amongst those performed at the theatre in October. Writers were asked to submit ten-minute dramas on a theme inspired by the life or lyrics of music legend David Bowie. The ten winning plays will receive their premiere over one weekend in October 2016 at the 10×10 New Writing Festival. They will be produced, directed and performed back-to-back at the Chesil Theatre. Each play will receive at least three performances.
Deborah Edgington, the 10×10 producer, said: “The aim of 10×10 is to discover, promote and produce the very best new writing of 10-minute plays. It has grown to become a national competition attracting entries from all over the UK.”
Stephen’s short story ‘The Fog’ appears in the July/August edition Ripples Magazine.
