Young Playwrights Showcase
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 Ó Clochartaigh, Jack Reynolds, Joe Reidy, directed by professional directors and performed by professional actors. This event is supported by Creative Ireland Mayo.
