The Significant Other Festival
The Pensive Federation are proud to present the 6th Significant Other Festival, this year at the Vaults under Waterloo Station, giving them their biggest stage ever. For the sixth time, they will present 10 new 10 minute plays, including a new musical, created in just 10 days. The Significant Other Festival is an attempt to explore relationships and our connections with the people around us in more detail, and to really celebrate modern relationships. We start with the theme of the significant other: colloquially used as a gender-blind term for a person's partner in an intimate relationship without disclosing or presuming anything about marital status, relationship status, or sexual orientation. We ask 10 writers to create a 10 minute play in 5 days with this theme in mind. We then hand the scripts over to a director and a company of 3 actors and give them 5 days to stage it. Every year we now add a further theme and stimulus, previous themes have included, genre, undercover (which gave us 10 different bed covers) and object of affection. This year our added theme is conditions.
