LOST Theatre Company is proud to present its annual One Act Festival. This event gives the UK’s hottest new writing and directing talent the chance to air their work at one of London’s best Fringe venues. So as we enter our 34th year what do we offer?

Over 6 nights we want to showcase a diverse and stimulating range of shows from some of the country’s best writers and directors.

What makes our Festival so special? Well, at the end of each evening the performers will receive an instant live critique from our Festival Adjudicator as well as a written review.

Over the years the Festival has had many highlights - performances by Ralph Fiennes and a young Mackenzie Crook, and success for its winning writers, including many who have gone on to have their work recorded by the BBC.

This year we will be offering a cash prize of £500 and a publishing contract with Stagescripts for the winning production plus the chance for one selected writer to have a new piece of writing work shopped on our stage.

Closing date for submissions is midnight on Sunday 1st April.

The Festival will run from Monday 28th May to Saturday 2nd June.
