The Young Playwrights Project

Wed 28 Aug

Young actors bring their scripts to life on stage.

The Young Playwrights Project is a collaborative initiative between Merrigong Theatre Company and The Drama Studio that provides young actors and playwrights with the opportunity to develop their theatre-making skills under the guidance of industry professionals.  Young actors from The Drama Studio perform the works, bringing the scripts to life on stage.

Students 16 – 19 years of age were invited to submit scripts, which were assessed by a panel of professional artists. Selected playwrights were given the opportunity to work with a mentor to develop their play over a four week period.
