Scripts Ireland’s Playwriting Festival
Scripts Ireland’s Playwriting Festival is seeking new plays to inspire and incite.
The theme for 2022 is ESCAPE.
Scripts Ireland’s Playwriting Festival is an annual four-day festival in Birr Co. Offaly dedicated to new Irish plays—the writing of them, the development and nurturing of them.
Three scripts most suited for development will be selected through a rigorous shortlisting process.
These selected playwrights then receive a week of mentoring and script development under the guidance of Playwright and Screenwriter Eugene O’Brien, where the whole process of writing and rewriting is explored in a collaborative supportive environment.
The festival supports three playwrights with a team of artists to mentor, develop and produce the emerging scripts for a rehearsed reading, directed by Jim Culleton of Fishamble. Industry professionals then judge the final versions and a winner is selected.
The deadline to apply is Monday 14 March, 5pm
