The Baptiste Programme
Smock Alley is looking for submissions for the 2023 edition of its flagship Rachel Baptiste programme.
Are you a black Irish writer, performer, or theatre maker? Are you a writer of colour from a discipline outside the performing arts? Are you interested in writing for the stage? Are you ready to commit time to exploring ideas about playwriting, putting ideas down on paper and then expanding into new drafts? Did you ever want to work with a dramaturg? Would you like the opportunity to talk to well-known playwrights and find out how they go about writing their plays? How about handing your script over to actors to hear your words read out?
If you have ever thought about these things the Baptiste Programme at Smock Alley could be right for you.
The Baptiste Programme is a paid and mentored script development programme for black Irish theatre makers and writers of colour.
The deadline for applications is 6pm on Monday 31st October 2022.
