2010-2014 Playwriting Festivals & the Edinburgh Fringe Festival
Each year the winning plays were staged as part of a playwriting festival in a London theatre. The casts were from 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.

Edinburgh Fringe Festival
We took three of the winning plays from our International Playwriting Competition to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2012 and 2013. In 2012 we took Moth to the Flame (the winning play for Teenage Audiences in the 2011 competition) and Normal (the winning play for Teenage Audiences in the 2010 competition). Moth to the Flame was performed by two talented young actors, Katurah Morrish and Joe Spence and was directed by Tom Foster. The play ran twice a day over three days, had some sell out shows and also received some glowing reviews. Normal was performed and directed by Perth Youth Theatre and ran over three days with sell out performances and also received some glowing reviews.
In 2013 we returned to the festival with A Concrete Jungle Full of Wild Cars the winning play for teenage audiences in 2012. The play was performed by students from WAC Arts (who also offer Trinity's Level 6 Diploma in Professional Musical Theatre) and directed by award winning director Che Walker. The play had a number of sell out performances and received great reviews including a story in the Scotsman.
