Dedicated volunteer readers have waded through more than 300 scripts to find 'three of the best' to be performed at this year's Windsor Fringe Festival.
Scripts came from 15 countries, including Finland, South Africa, Portugal and Australia. They were all read anonymously by 44 readers and the shortlist of nine was sent to Fringe judges Iqbal khan and Alan Brodie to pick the three finalists.
The three will be performed on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Oct. 2, 3 and 4 at the Firestation Centre for Arts and Culture, St Leonards Road.
They are Home Truth submitted by Adam Hughes from Leeds, No Cure yet for Horse Chestnuts by Katy Walkerfrom Steep, Hants and Blown Apart by Michelle Warwicker from Bristol.
One will be chosen as the winner of this year's 11th Kenneth Branagh Award.
The Windsor Fringe Festival runs from September 19 to October 5.
