SCRIPTS: Ireland’s Playwriting Festival seeks new works
Calling the writers, poets, dreamers, and schemers. Scripts is seeking new plays to inspire, inject, invent, invoke, and incite. The theme this year is GRATITUDE.
Deadline for submissions is Friday 14th June 2019.
Taking place in Birr, Co Offaly, Scripts Ireland’s Playwriting Festival creates unique opportunities for playwrights to have their work developed and produced. The scripts most suited for development will be chosen by the selection panel headed by playwright Eugene O’Brien.
The selected playwrights receive a week of mentoring and script development, where the whole process of writing and rewriting is explored in a collaborative supportive environment. The festival supports three playwrights with a week’s accommodation in beautiful surroundings and a team of artists to mentor, develop and produce the emerging script for a rehearsed reading of the new works at the festival finale. Industry professionals then judge the final versions and a winner is selected. Previous judges have included Jim Culleton of Fishamble, Jesse Weaver of The Abbey Theatre and playwright Deirdre Kinahan.
Playwrights can submit plays through the online submission form here
