Autumn Terror chills the Arts Centre!

Autumn Terror makes it's debut as our PlayWrite winner 2006 goes on stage at the Arts Centre...

It seems a long time ago that we invited you to put pen to paper and come up with an original play.  But, by the end of last year, over 20 scripts had been sent in for judging and by Christmas we were all voting for our favourite from the three finalists.

After some intense last minute voting... It was Jon Nash, with Autumn Terror, who finally came out the winner of our competition putting his dream a step closer to reality.

As the Playwrite winner, Jon's play was taken up by Swindon's Old Town Theatre Company for rehearsals followed by a performance at the Arts Centre in Swindon. What better prize for an aspiring writer?

Autumn Terror debut

It was on Thursday 22nd February 2007, at the Swindon Arts Centre, that Autumn Terror made its debut in front of a paying audience as part of the Harold Jolliffe One Act Play Festival.

Jon was there as well and was thrilled to see his creation brought to life and after the show he got to meet the cast and crew for Autumn Terror.

So there you have it... another year of Playwrite done and dusted. We're very much hoping to bring you another cracking season of drama in '07/'08.  So watch this space!
