Tickets are now on Sale for The Festival of Fleeting Words 2 October 2021, 18:00 - A 24 Hour Online New Writing Festival


The Common Air Theatre Company is proud to present The Festival of Fleeting Words 2 October 2021 at 18:00.

The festival, which began in July 2020 as a response to the closure of theatres,  was designed to help keep the creative juices flowing when everyone was unable to gather. But with theatres opening up, the festival's appeal now lies in something more than substitution: by being only 24 hours long & online, we have been able to collaborate with excellent creatives from across several continents. It is an opportunity to work & network with an international group of participants - many of whom have become regular contributors.

The festival seeks to create a new genre of work that is fundamentally designed for and highlights the differences of this new medium by creatively stretching the limitations of video technology, which was built for business, not for the performing arts.

Each short play will be up to 10 minutes in length for 3 to 5 actors.
