January 2021 – our main annual show – theatre TBC

If you have an idea for a play for Jan 2021, please let us know as soon as possible.
If you are interested in direction, this production generally requires a director with significant previous experience and a strong track record – who has ideally directed at a venue similar in size and complexity to the Nuffield Theatre, or main house at RAODS’ Plaza Theatre.

October 2020 – we have booked Hanger Farm Arts Centre for three nights, 22-24 October 2020
We are looking for a single full-length play or two one-act plays (each approx. 55 minutes max) – any ideas?

Totton Festival of Drama 2021 (March 2021 TBC)
One-act plays (30-55 minutes). If you’re a new or inexperienced director and would like to direct for Totton in 2021, we can offer a mentor: an experienced director available to provide advice and support. These plays may also be performed outside the festival.
