Micro Theatre Festival
Micro Theatre is a festival of short plays performed in non-traditional theatre spaces such as cafés and art galleries in Newcastle – pocket sized plays in surprising places.
While Micro Theatre promotes local business and theatre talent, it is also a competition where participants vie for honours in two main categories. The first category is a writing competition for new scripts. The second is a performance category where entrants may use or rework an existing play to fit within the parameters of the competition. All plays are between 5 and 20 minutes in length.
Micro Theatre is an independent festival unique to Newcastle, sitting comfortably within our flourishing local arts culture, cafés and galleries.
And in the words of The Follower Newspaper, ‘It is such an exciting new concept for Newcastle and a ridiculously enjoyable way to spend an hour of your evening! Get out there and be surprised!’
