One Act Play Auditions!!


We are thrilled to announce that after such a long break, due to the pandemic, we will be holding auditions for two one act plays on Sunday 18th July.

You are invited to audition for Two Point Oh! by Jeff Dunne and also Pop Goes the Patient by Leonard Barnett.

Two Point Oh! was the winner of the Carnon Downs Drama 50th Anniversary One Act Play competition, which ended up being judged through the pandemic. Pop Goes the Patient was CDDG’s first ever production, and was a play we had hoped to perform as part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations in 2020.

One Act Play – We Have a Winner!

One Act Play Competition

We have a winner! When 294 became 1!

It’s taken 9 months, 3 lockdowns for firstly the CDDG panel to arrive at a shortlist of 14 and then secondly for the judges (Kirsty Cotton, Talent Development Programme Manager at Hall For Cornwall, Libby Shaw, Manager at Waterstones Truro and Local Author Liz Fenwick, latest book ’The Path to the Sea’ 2019) to choose a winner.


’Two Point OH’ by Jeff Dunne, Maryland USA.

In a very difficult and tight decision the judges picked 3 further plays to be joint runners up. So in no particular order:


’The Notice’ by Lucy Charleston,Truro Cornwall.

’The Incident at Wembley Stadium’ by Lucas Kingman, Falmouth Cornwall.

’Seven Small Deaths’ by Emily Hageman. Iowa USA.

To see just how hard a decision it was, each of these plays are here to download for you to read yourself:
