Our Playwriting Festivals
Each year the winning plays were staged as part of a playwriting festival in a London theatre. Our first festival was held in 2010 at the Garrick Theatre in the West End and the 2011 and 2012 festivals were held at the Unicorn Theatre in London Bridge. The 2013-14 festival was held at the St. James Theatre in Victoria.
Seven new plays were staged over the four festivals, with winning playwrights coming as far as Australia and New Zealand to see their plays performed. We worked with three primary schools, three theatre groups and a range of independent actors and directors to bring the plays to life, giving hundreds of people an opportunity to perform or be involved in the staging of a play in a London theatre.
Each playwriting festival also included workshops, readings, live music, talks and much more.
