SOLO Fest is a four day festival that showcases three captivating theatre shows by solo performers. Audiences have the opportunity to see two shows each evening, along with FREE pop-up performances by local artists, and post-show gossip events.
One person shows depend on the combination of imaginative writing with skilled and versatile performance and stagecraft. Despite there only being one person on stage, the best solo shows can transport you far from the theatre into another world.
We have handpicked three of the best solo shows in the UK today, by top young artists Keisha Thompson, Tatty Hennessy and Toby Thompson. Check out the full schedule below.
Are you an aspiring writer? Each night of SOLO Fest we are looking for submissions of solo pieces to be performed. Keep checking the website for more information on how to apply!
Interested in writing your own solo performance? You can also join our Writing for Solo Performance Masterclass on Sun 13 Jan 2019 with Chris O’Connell, Artistic Director of Theatre Absolute and the Shop Front Theatre in Coventry.
