The Young Playwrights Project

Run in collaboration with The Drama Studio at IPAC, The Young Playwrights Project showcases the talents of Wollongong’s youngest playwrights and performers.

All young playwrights with an exciting 10 – 15 minute play they would love to see on stage, are invited to apply. Scripts are assessed by professional practitioners and the playwrights selected will work with a mentor to develop their play over a four week period from July – August 2017.

At the end of this process, young actors from The Drama Studio will perform the works and playwrights will be able to enjoy their scripts brought to life on stage.

Date: 23rd August
Time: 7.30pm
Venue: Bruce Gordon Theatre  

All scripts submitted must be

• Written by 16 – 18 year olds
• 10 – 15 minutes in length
• Inoffensive and suitable for 16 – 18 year olds to perform

The deadline for script submission is Friday 28 April 2017.  Please attach the submission cover sheet [PDF] to your script.
