What do we do?​

'Two of the most exciting producers of new writing I've met in the last ten years'

- Simon Stephens

  • We read over 1,500 short plays each year, and select the best writers we can find for our festival, October-Fest.

  • We partner those writers with a mentor.

    • Previous mentors have included:

      • Simon Stephens

      • Timberlake Wertenbaker

      • April DeAngelis

      • Dennis Kelly

      • Lolita Chakrabarti

      • James Graham

      • Alice Birch

      • Roy Williams

  • Our writers are paid, and their work is shown in front of major venues and literary agents.

    • Pieces that were part of Pint-Sized have gone on to be programmed at:​

      • The Royal Court​

      • Soho Theatre

      • Vault Festival, winning the Audience Choice Award

      • King's Head Theatre

  • Our live house band plays tracks tailor-written about each piece. 

  • Tickets are £10, and audience members get discounts on their first drink at the bar.

  • We mentor and give feedback to hundreds of writers whose work isn't a part of the show; if your work isn't chosen, we want to be able to help you in a way that matters.

  • We are funded by Arts Council England, and were a resident company at The Bunker until its closure in 2020.
