Interest in the One-Act has been high since group registration opened in August. The government announcement on the increased numbers allowed in performance venues has brought about extra excitement to all those looking forward to a return to amateur drama. 36 groups have registered so far to perform on the 2021 One-Act Circuit.

There are 16 festivals hosting this year so groups will only be permitted to participate in five festivals. If you intend participating on the One-Act Circuit and haven't already registered, please do so ASAP.

Festivals will start accepting applications on September 18th. Applications can be made on the registration application form on the DLI website, or else directly to ADCI/DLI Joint Committee Secretary Ollie Kenny, by emailing him with your play title, the author and contact email to ollie.kenny@openeir.ie

Circuit rules, Fixture List, and Festival Application Forms (Festival applications from 18th September only) are now available on the ADCI and DLI websites.

We can't wait to welcome old friends and new to South Wicklow Drama Festival in 2022.

'This is not the end of the play,
this is just the interval,
because the show must go on'.

Listen carefully for the voice of our own Brendan Doyle.
