Do you write?

The Dilys Guite Players (DGP) aim to give all people something positive to do and encourage them to develop new skills and interests.  We believe that talent is all around but opportunity is often not. So we pride ourselves on offering unique benefits that many theatres often don’t, and give more expansive approaches to theatre that inspires our community to value themselves, to think big and to believe in succeeding.

We invite talented writers or individuals to submit their wonderful entries, which we can then build our festivals around, and provide a fantastic opportunity for people to see your work performed on stage.

New Writing Festival

Our New Writing Festival is performed annually. We welcome pieces that:

  • Are no longer than 20 minutes in length (one A4 page is roughly one minute of stage time)

  • Have no more than five characters in the piece

  • Have no set changes

  • Use minimal props

We are open to writing from all subject matters however, where possible, suitability for all audiences is preferred.

To submit your work, please see the note below.
