Comedy . Tragedy . Suspense . Romance
You might find all these genres in this sixth season of the Ellerslie One Act Play Festival. This biennial festival has become a highly-coveted event for playwrights to submit original works and as a mentoring event for new directors. This year six plays will be selected from a number of submissions with three plays being performed at each show. The one-acts contain multiple themes, each accomplishing its own story with efficient use of dialogue and technical elements. The result is a journey of emotions, making for a tremendously entertaining festival. Set in cabaret style seating, the festival is a more relaxed way of seeing the plays and is suitable for group bookings. Book for two shows to see all plays.
