Hot Shorts 2022

Attention Would-Be HOT SHORTS 2022 Playwrights

The Drill Hall Theatre Company has set November 30th 2021 as the closing date for submissions to HOT SHORTS 2022, the 10-minute play competition that has run bi-annually for the past 20 years. While you don’t necessarily have to have the play complete by this date, as a minimum, an outline of the play is required including its intended themes.

Throughout the first half of 2022, we will help further develop the plays through workshopping before a selection of these plays are chosen for HOT SHORTS 2022 to be staged in November 2022.

If you haven’t done so already please email us at letting us know if you plan to enter HOT SHORTS 2022.  We look forward to reconnecting with previous HOT SHORTS participants and meeting many new writers.
