Young Playwrights Showcase

May 22 @ 12:00 am - May 22 @ 12:00 am

Join us for a rehearsed reading of new short plays, devised and scripted by emerging teenage writers from Mayo. Throughout the spring The Linenhall Arts Centre, and Fighting Words Mayo mentored a group of young writers. Teenagers from across the county came together to learn about the art, craft, and mechanics of playwriting. In each workshop, the art form was explored with a focus on character building, scene-work, dialogue, improvisations, live writing, observation exercises, and stagecraft. This free theatre event will include five engrossing duologues written by Aisling Cresham, Eva Garayalde, Muiris Ă“ Clochartaigh, Jack Reynolds, Joe Reidy, directed by professional directors and performed by professional actors. This event is supported by Creative Ireland Mayo.
