PLAY ON (READINGS)
As part of a series of special events to accompany the 2012 Dublin Theatre Festival presents….
Play On is the Festivals new artist development programme to discover and encourage new playwrights.
Following an open call, 30 playwrights were selected and offered individual meetings and writers groups to inspire them to write new plays, with the artistic support of international playwriting mentor Graham Whybrow, inviting an artistic response to the question: Who are we and what are we doing to each other in contemporary Ireland? These two programmes of script-in-hand readings will showcase the quality and range of their work. Play On is a catalyst: it aims to get new plays written to get new plays on.
EVENTS ARE FREE BUT TICKETED. BOOKING THROUGH THE FESTIVAL BOX OFFICE FROM 15 AUGUST.
Supported by Irish Theatre Trust
