Lucky Dozen: The Play’s The Thing!

18th April 2018 by Maura McHugh

Act I: You’d like to write a play.  Act II: You have written a play and are not sure what to do with it.  Or, Act III: You’re not sure exactly what shape or form a play should take.

If you are a player in any of the above Acts now’s the time to gather information!

Join other Guild members for a Lucky Dozen talk on ‘Writing for the Stage’ by acclaimed playwright Elaine Murphy.

Elaine’s debut play Little Gem won the Fishamble New Writing Award in 2008, the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award in 2009, a nomination for Best New Play at the Irish Times Theatre Awards and a Writers’ Guild of Ireland ZeBBie Award in 2009. Her second play Ribbons was commissioned by the Abbey Theatre for The Fairer Sex, a series of short plays written by leading female playwrights. Elaine was the winner of the Stewart Parker BBC Northern Ireland Drama Award in 2009 and her most recent play Shush, an Abbey Theatre commission, premiered in 2013. She is currently under commission from the Abbey Theatre.

The talk will take place from 7 pm – 9 pm on 3 May 2018 at the office of the Writers’ Guild of Ireland, Arthouse, Curved Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2

The first twelve paid-up Guild members to email: info @ script.ie with ‘Elaine Murphy’ in the subject line of the email will secure a place at this valuable talk.
