Stage Fright shortlist announced!

London Horror Festival and the Wireless Theatre Company are thrilled to announce the three short-listed entries for this year’s Stage Fright writing competition. Each of these entries will be performed and recorded live at the gala event on October 15th, the opening day of the festival.

And the shortlist is…

Intense – by Gina Hills

The Sacred Amethyst of Myanmar – by Jeremy Fielding

Muse – Lucy Bell

The event will be presided over by the fabulous Richard O’Brien, who will choose one of these incredible plays to receive the first Andre De Lorde Award for excellence in horror writing.

The event itself is almost sold out, so if you’d like to see the plays performed live and meet our guest judge, you’re advised to book now! If you can’t make it to the event the finished recording will be available for free download from the beginning of November.

On behalf of all at London Horror Festival and the Wireless Theatre Company we’d like to congratulate our winning authors and extend our warmest thanks to all those who entered. The standard has blown us all away, and we’re already looking forward to opening for entries to Stage Fright 2013!
