Script Factor Final 2019
Throughout each year the York branch of Script Yorkshire hold heats to find the best 15 minute plays on a given theme. The five winners of our Script Factor heats, Loreta Vilkyte, Steve Brennan, Kate Greenbrown, Saeth Wheeler and Richard Kay, come together for the grand final and the chance to win the highly coveted (but extremely small) Script Factor champion’s trophy.
The writers have been asked to produce a 15 minute script with a theme of “The Forest”, as a commemoration of the centenary of The Forestries Act of 1919 and of the formation of the Forestry Commission. The plays will be presented as script-in-hand performances by local actors who are given just two hours to rehearse. We are delighted that this event will be compered by York Theatre Royal’s Damian Cruden, who has supported Script Yorkshire’s York Branch and Script Factor since our inception eleven years ago.
It’s you, the audience, who make the ultimate decision as you vote for your favourite script in the 2019 Script Factor Final.
