Bring your play to life at festival of scriptwriting

Budding playwrights have just a couple of weeks left to get their entries in for Scripts, Ireland’s playwriting festival dedicated to new Irish plays, which runs from July 3 to July 9 in Birr, Co. Offaly.

Playwrights (both established and emerging) are invited to submit original 15 minute plays on the theme ‘Changes’ by Friday 8 April, 2016.

Plays will be chosen, by a selection panel headed by writer Eugene O'Brien, as the scripts most suited to development and performance at the headline event at Birr Theatre & Arts Centre.

Playwrights must be available to be in Birr from Sunday 3 July -Thursday 7 July as well as attend the performance on the final night.

Each play will be assigned a director and actors. The plays will be presented as staged readings at the headline event on Saturday July 9.

Playwrights can submit plays by email to submissions.scripts@gmail.com or by post to Scripts Birr Theatre & Arts Centre, Oxmantown Hall, Birr, Co. Offaly.
