New Plays Wanted

If you have a play burning a hole in your desk drawer, read on:

To celebrate our 25th birthday Red Kettle Theatre company would like to host the second Waterford Festival of New Plays. We are searching for Ireland's playwrights who have not had their work previously published. The first Festival of New Plays was a huge success, and coincided with the Sean Dunne Literary Festival. The second festival will be staged in 2010. This is a great opportunity for any new writers who would like to see their work come to life.

Entries should be sent by hard copy or email (no discs please) by 31st October 2008 to:

Joan Dalton,
Red Kettle Theatre Company,
15 Broad Street,

or: joan[at]red-kettle[dot]com

Sounds interesting. Are you going to give it a go?

Helen, I don't actually have a play in my drawer but just in case someone else does...

I've never tried writing a play, since leaving school. I remember being in one that someone else had written and saying the word 'Brassiere' instead of 'brazier' and never living it down. I think it put me off for life...

Karen, I'm the same, I'm just not a good actor and I was never comfortable saying other people's lines. I wrote a short play for a creative writing course I did ages ago, it wasn't my cup of tea then.
