Scripts Ireland's Playwriting Festival
News: Scripts 2020 - Alive and Online
After receiving over 70 entries we are delighted to announce the three selected finalists; Lesley Conroy, Jemma Curran and Mick Donnellan. These finalists will go through an online/remote one-on-one mentoring session with playwright Eugene O’Brien.
On Thursday 28 May at 8:30pm watch 3 new exciting works of theatre performed by Carolyn Bracken, Aaron Monaghan and Clare Monnelly and directed by Jim Culleton. This will be followed by a discussion panel with Jesse Weaver (Abbey Theatre), Gina Moxley, Eugene O'Brien and Phillip McMahon.
You will find a link here on our web page or on our social media to watch it all from the comfort of your own home!
As we adjust to the new normal we now find ourselves in, we are in awe of the valiant efforts of all our front line workers, who are quite literally fighting for all our lives. We are thinking of our wider communities self-isolating, who are weary, anxious and sad watching news with little positivity. SCRIPTS is creating an opportunity to allow creativity to thrive. This initiative will remind us we are part of a collective; a resilient resourceful community. The world as we know is changing daily, but we can still create the opportunity for new writing to be nurtured, reworked, and performed. We hope this new venture will help in some small way.
