Winners’ Week

Winners’ Week

This year the New Forest Players celebrate an incredible 90 years of drama with a production of six one act plays from the 18th to 21st July.

To mark the 90th anniversary, an important milestone in its history, the New Forest Players held a play writing competition which attracted entrants not only from the New Forest but throughout the UK and indeed, overseas too!

The standard proved to be extremely high in both the Adult and Youth sections – a challenging but enjoyable task for the selection committee and independent judge, Linda Kirkman, well-known critic and theatre journalist.

The winning plays will be performed at the Performing Arts Centre, Ballard School, New Milton BH25 5SU.
