NEW WORKS FESTIVAL

New Works is STAG’s second festival of the year putting on six shows over a three day period. New Works invites all members of the society to try their hand at writing a completely new and original play. Writers are given the option to create a shorter 20 minute piece or submit a longer 50 minute script. These can be about anything you want, let your imagination run wild!

Those who end up being successful in their endeavours of writing a piece for New Works are then given the opportunity to direct their own script and bring their play to life. Furthermore, every year a group of judges (writers, critics, directors, lecturers from the theatre industry) are invited to provide feedback on all pieces presented and ultimately choose one of the 50 minute plays to send onto a run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone involved in STAG who is considering taking theatre to the next level and presenting their original work to the creative world.
