One Act Plays

Kyneton’s Festival of One Act Plays, celebrating 62 years of continuous performance will return in 2018, and will be performed at the renovated Bluestone Theatre in Hutton Street Kyneton over 3 days from 31 August to 2 September.

We welcome the return of Stephen Mitchell as Adjudicator for our Festival this year. Stephen, a performer and scriptwriter for stage and television, has a broad knowledge and wide experience across the many roles involved in stage management and performance.

New competition categories are to be introduced this year. They are the separate One Act Plays category of Best Drama and Best Comedy. They will replace the Best Play category and runner up prize. There will also be an Encouragement Award.

Youth plays and the regular One Act Plays along with the monologues will still feature but the individual category for Australian plays will not continue as the majority of entries are now Australian plays.
