In 2021, Scripts announced a new initiative in collaboration with Youth Theatre Ireland, The George B. Miller Award.
In 2022 the initiative becomes a reality and we are delighted to offer three emerging playwrights the opportunity to each work on writing a play through the course of the year with the full support and mentorship of writing and dramaturgical professionals!
At the end of the process the final plays will be presented by youth theatres at Playshare, during the Youth Theatre Ireland Symposium, taking place at UCC in Winter 2022.
If you want to apply, all you need is an idea and a click here!
We are seeking ideas for plays aimed for young ensembles aged 11-14 year old.
Selected playwrights will begin a process of writing, mentorship, and performance. Through dramaturgical support and feedback from industry professionals, playwrights will receive valuable critique and guidance to craft their play from initial ideas to page onto stage.
All you need is a (good) idea and oodles of energy!
Deadline for submissions is Friday 22nd April
