Warwickshire One-Act Play Festival  About Us
About Us The festival has been running for more than twenty years. In 2010 the organisation of the festival was taken over by Nuneaton Arts Council (the charity registered body that runs the Abbey Theatre, Nuneaton). This support to the festival, in the form of providing a performing venue and technical staff, gave renewed impetus and energy. The Abbey Theatre has a 250 tiered seating auditorium, front of house bar and refreshment counter, and 4 backstage dressing rooms. It undergoes frequent maintenance and upgrading of it's technical facilities and for the techies amongst you, details of those facilities can be found on the theatre website. The 2016 festival attracted the largest number of entries in the event’s history. There were fourteen entries performed over five sessions and an estimate of 90 actors and backstage staff being involved. It is the aim to extend the festival to run over a full week of six sessions by 2022.
