It is the final night of an amateur one-act play festival. All the participants have gathered to hear the adjudicator's final remarks. Who will win the awards? What of this year's non-competitive theme? Wait and see!

Tired of those same old shows at the one-act play festivals year after year? Have you ever thought - "That theatre company shouldn't have won first prize - their production was awful!"? Then this might be the script for you!

Putting Back the Fest has proven to be a hit with audiences and adjudicators alike.

"A delightful comic presentation that used timing and understatement to great effect...carefully crafted, confidently and beautifully paced..." - Kate Donelan, Melbourne University, 27 July 1997
