One Act Plays for Short Attention Spans
Presented annually by the Lost Theatre, the One Act Festival will soon be underway for its 29th year. As is obvious from the title, all entrants must consist of one act plays lasting between thirty and forty-five minutes.

Lost Theatre has enjoyed something of a peripatetic existence since its founding at the London Oratory School, moving to Fulham Road, followed by a period as a touring theatre. Now with a permanent home on the Wandsworth Road it remains true to its original aims; a theatre company for under 27 year olds with a commitment to furthering the careers of individual performers as part of a group.

This year's festival runs from 20 to 25 May, with three performances per evening; each production will be judged by an adjudicator. For the past five years this has been in the person of Jeremy Kingston who has presented awards (in 2011 and 2012) for Best Direction, Best New Writing and Best Cast.

One Act Festival is now older than the age group it supports and is an opportunity to visit a London fringe theatre where you could possibly see some of tomorrow's upcoming talent.
