  • 15 pages or less

  • No more than three characters

  • Reflect the theme of overcoming adversity


Competition closes 30 September 2020 at 5 pm  

Please forward any questions to Ashlyn’s email:



The Government has announced that all indoor public gatherings of 100+ are prohibited.  On Thursday 19 March Wanganui Repertory Committee decided that to continue to operate as we normally do would be unwise.


We have made this decision in the best interest of all members and, of course, having the health and well-being of the public in mind.


We were just starting to rehearse for "Daylight Atheist" this show has been postponed.  

The AGM has also been postponed.

Play readings are cancelled for the time being.
