Irish Theatre Institute (ITI) held an online symposium on What is Play? on 4th & Friday 5th November 2021 celebrating and interrogating the art, craft and business of playwriting, built around the central provocation ‘What is a Play?’
Featuring a host of Ireland’s leading theatre practitioners, the full symposium is now available to watch here.
In a companion digital publication, ITI commissioned six responses from playwrights and theatre makers to the provocation ‘What is a Play?’: Veronica Coburn, Rosemary Jenkinson, Thomas Kilroy, Phillip McMahon, Zoe Ní Riordáin and Martin Sharry. These essays are the building blocks of the keynote and panel discussions.
