2019 ReActor Open Call

‘ReActor’ is an exciting theatre project which gives aspiring writers the opportunity to bring their new short plays to life in a fresh and unique process of creation and performance. The ‘ReActor’ project has been running for the last two years and has been a huge hit with writers, performers and audiences alike.

We are now releasing an open call to playwriters nationwide for entries to our 2019 festival.
