The Young Playwrights Project

32 Burelli Street, Wollongong,

28 August 2019

Young actors bring their scripts to life on stage.

The Young Playwrights Project is a collaborative initiative between Merrigong Theatre Company and The Drama Studio that provides young actors and playwrights with the opportunity to develop their theatre-making skills under the guidance of industry professionals. Young actors from The Drama Studio perform the works, bringing the scripts to life on stage.

Students 16 to 19 years of age were invited to submit scripts, which were assessed by a panel of professional artists. Selected playwrights were given the opportunity to work with a mentor to develop their play over a four week period.
