About the festival

Pint-Sized, 'two of the most exciting producers of new-writing I've met in the last ten years' (Simon Stephens), bring their first week-long festival to The Bunker.

Each night you'll see the Pint-Sized you know and love; five short plays, chosen from 1,681 entries, with the writers mentored by Lucy Kirkwood, Simon Stephens, Lucy Prebble and more.

As ever, the show comes wrapped up with our house band playing tracks written about each piece, and discounts at the bar; every previous Pint-Sized has sold out well in advance, and we turned down huge queues for returns in May, so get booking!


Afternoons at The Bunker will be filled with Q&As and workshops with the very best in the business - from the UK's leading playwrights to the best directors, dramaturgs and literary agents around.

Tickets for workshops and Q&As are free for anyone with a ticket to one of the evening shows.

Once you have booked your ticket, you will receive information on how to reserve your free Q&A or workshop place. These have limited spaces, so get booking soon!
