Stage Fright

London Horror Festival + Wireless Theatre Company

Recorded live on 14th Oct 2013

The Stage Fright writing competition sets out to find the most frightening and original new short radio dramas from across the world. Last year's inaugural event saw celebrity judge Richard O'Brien hand the trophy to Jeremy Fielding for his gothic pastiche The Sacred Amethys of Myanmar, and this year has seen an incredibly strong selection of scripts produced by writers from across the world. This year's event will be judged by award-winning author and critic Kim Newman.


The three shortlisted plays will be dramatized by a talented professional team, performed live and recorded by Wireless Theatre Company. These three plays will then be available from both the Wireless Theatre Company and London Horror Festival websites as podcasts, allowing everyone not able to attend the live performance to enjoy each of the short-listed plays.


At the end of the evening, a winning entry will then be selected by Kim Newman to receive the Andre De Lorde Award for horror writing.
