Stage Fright

London Horror Festival + Wireless Theatre Company

Recorded live on 12th Oct 2014

The Stage Fright writing competition sets out to find the most frightening and original new short radio dramas from across the world.


The three shortlisted plays will be dramatised 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 our celebrity judge to receive the Andre De Lorde Award for horror writing.


This year's event will be judged by acclaimed horror author Seth Patrick. Seth Patrick is the author of the 'Reviver' trilogy, the first of which was published in June 2013 by Pan Macmillan in the UK and Thomas Dunne Books in the US. Film rights have been optioned by Legendary Pictures, the company behind Inception and Man of Steel.


The evening is also the launch night of the 2014 London Horror Festival, so join us for a night of horror entertainment. As well as the Stage Fright competition, there will be our first ever Horror Cabaret - all manner of horror based festivities as well as a fantastic opportunity to mingle with the stars of this year's festival.
