The INK Festival 2023 will take place 13-16th April (April 17th which is an exclusive day for studentsin Halesworth, Suffolk. We have expanded into the town to create many original performance spaces where we will be performing more than 50 short new plays, selected this year from hundreds of submissions from new as well as experienced writers.

 What is unique about INK is that we produce all the plays performed.

Chosen from annual submissions and INK workshops, each play is read at least 5 times before a short list is formed, from which directors select the plays they wish to direct. We cast the plays from auditions in Suffolk and London and each year bring together a team of more than 60 professional theatre practitioners of actors, directors, stage crew and technical staff to enable The INK Festival.

This year we had several submission categories including: The Environment, Multimedia, Radio Comedy, Musicals, Physical Theatre and more, producing a wide variety of relevant and thought-provoking plays.

As well as more than 50 short plays there will be an exciting line-up of comedy, radio,  art, poetry, music, children’s programmes, fascinating talks, workshops, short new films and much more.

As ever, we are delighted to have a number of plays from some very special supporters including Anthony Horowitz, Kate Mosse, Greg Mosse, Louis de Bernieres, Richard Francis, and Lise Mayer.

There will be special guest appearances from Alexei Sayle, Kevin Clifton, Jan Etherington, David Morrissey, Jan Ravens, Luke Wright and Radio Active in a thrilling line-up of talks and performances.

Sunday Funday, on Sunday 16th April will see additional and exciting street performances and activities for everyone – performed along The Thoroughfare and Market Square in the centre of Halesworth.
