Word of Mouth Theatre & Performing Arts


Word of Mouth is an exciting new short play season which will provide an opportunity for new and emerging writers to showcase their work.

Each play has its own director and will have a simple set; 2 or 3 chairs and a table.
The event is dedicated to the memory of Paul King who was a good friend of Titchfield Festival Theatre as well as a staunch supporter of new plays, and a wonderful and respected writer. Paul was instrumental in setting up the theatre’s Playwrights Group which meets fortnightly, a mixture of experienced and less experienced writers, with the objective of helping to support and nurture new talent.
Each play lasts for between 10 – 20 minutes, with six performed in the first act and the remaining five following after the interval. The plays will cover a wide range of themes with subjects including revenge; human relationships and alcohol addiction. Some are darkly comic pieces, others more serious or perhaps even bizarre…
Johnny O’Hanlon, co-ordinator along with Janette Evans of the inaugural Word of Mouth production says, “I am delighted to have the opportunity to direct these plays, particularly as my good friend Paul King was such an inspiration to emerging and younger playwrights locally. It has been fascinating to see how each of the plays has evolved over the past year and is testament to the amazing talent we have at Titchfield Festival Theatre.”
Johnny continues, “I love the fact that the writers have created characters that are multi-layered, offering insight and a sense of perspective. Word of Mouth will undoubtedly challenge the audience as the plays move from style to style and it focuses their attention for that brief moment on a different world.”
In addition to the new adult theatre production, Titchfield’s highly successful and award-winning Youth Theatre is performing its own series of plays on Saturday 23rd March: Is it me? All of the actors are aged between 8 – 16 years. There will be twelve plays, each one based on the improvisations performed by the youngsters and some written by Johnny O’Hanlon. There will be a mix of styles, including slapstick; serious; spooky and surreal.
Word of Mouth opens on Monday 25th March 2019 until Saturday 30th March at 7.30pm in the Acorn Studio, Titchfield Festival Theatre, St Margarets Lane, Titchfield PO14 4BG.
