SCDA Festival of One Act Plays

Excellent drama and comedy from the cream of amateur drama companies comes to Pitlochry Festival Theatre - every year, the Scottish Community Drama Association (SCDA) runs a competitive One Act Play Festival, which draws entries from up to 200 clubs from all over Scotland.  This year’s final will feature eight plays which have fought their way through a round robin competition – competing for the honour of performing on the stage of Pitlochry Festival Theatre. Three plays will be presented on both Thursday and Friday night, with two plays, plus the final prize-giving, taking place on the Saturday night.

If previous SCDA finals are anything to go by, you can rely on a mixture of drama and comedy presented with flair and enthusiasm, and representing the very best of Scottish amateur drama.

Pitlochry Festival is delighted to once again play host to this major event in conjunction with the SCDA, which has acted as the representative body for amateur theatre in Scotland since the 1920s.

Amongst the finalists is the Aberfeldy Drama Group who will be performing Ring Road by Anita Vitesse on Thursday 13 April.

With the eventual winner representing Scotland in the British Festival in July, this will be three evenings of entertainment, drama and high tension – good luck to everyone involved!

The Festival of One Act Plays takes place between Thursday 13 April to Saturday 15 April at 7pm, and tickets are £17 or £48 for all three nights.
