The Paul Taylor Mills Summer Play Festival is in it's 11th year, running a repertory theatre season with over 60 years of history in Sidmouth.

Sidmouth is proud to host one of the longest running repertory  theatre seasons in the country.

In repertory theatre, a company of actors rehearse and perform back to back plays in house for a season, often rehearsing the following week's play whilst performing each night.

The intense process creates a buzz and brings a vibrant energy to the hosting venue. This year's play season runs from 24th June to 21st September, hosting 12 plays over 12 weeks, with a break in the middle for Sidmouth Folk Week.

Paul Taylor Mills, artistic director of Turbine Theatre at Battersea Power Station and previously a producer to Andrew Lloyd Webber, has been running the Sidmouth Summer Play Festival for the past 11 years.

This year's Summer Play Festival is shaping up to be a strong year with a great selection of plays including; Abigail's Party by Mike Leigh, Yes Prime Minister by Antony Jay and Jonathan Lynn, God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza and and Dial M for Murder by Frederick Knott.

Tickets will go on sale at 10am on Wednesday 24th April. Season ticket deals will also be available.
