The INK Festival 2023 will take place 13-16th April in Halesworth, Suffolk. We have expanded further into the town to create 8 performance spaces where we will be performing more than 50 short new plays, selected this year from more than 900 submissions. What is unique about INK is that we produce all the plays performed. They are chosen from the annual submissions; each play submitted is read three times before a long list is formed, this list is then sent off to the directors who select the plays they wish to direct. We cast the plays from numerous auditions in Suffolk and London and the after hours of rehearsals they are performed at The INK Festival. Each year INK brings together a team of more than 50 theatre practitioners including actors, directors, stage crew and technical staff to enable The INK Festival.

This year we had a number of different submission categories including The Environment, AI, Radio Comedy, Musicals and more, so there will be a wide variety of relevant and thought provoking plays.

As well as the short plays there will be an exciting lineup of comedy, art, poetry, music, children’s programmes, fascinatinating talks, workshops, short new films and much more.

Further details and tickets will be released in early 2023.
