Event description

Fighting Words Mayo, in conjunction with The Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar, is offering a unique opportunity for enthusiastic young people to take part in an intensive playwriting programme.

The programme comprises a series of 6 playwriting workshops in which each participant will work towards creating their own short play, gaining lots of tips and guidance from trained mentors. Each play will be directed and performed by a professional director and actors professional delivering a rehearsed staged reading at the Linenhall before an invited audience.

Participation is Free

We are now in search of enthusiastic young writers aged 15-18 to take part in the programme. Participation is free of charge. However, participants must commit to attending each workshop and all rehearsals with the theatre professionals.

This is a unique opportunity to work with a team of theatre professionals on a play that you have written. The workshops will begin in mid-September 2024.

If you are interested and would like to participate, or if you have any queries, please contact:
