“Write On!”, a Coast youth playwriting project wants to help you create your own theatre production. Opening with an exciting playwriting contest for youth on Feb. 1, there’s only one restriction: keep your play under 20 minutes. The winning plays will be workshopped with award winning playwright, artistic director and UBC professor, Marcus Youssef. The youth playwrights will then direct and work with youth teams to build their own fall production, coming together in a joint November 2018 performance.
Driftwood Players is offering a free intro to playwriting workshop on Feb.9, 1-5pm at the Gibsons Public Library, for interested youth playwrights. It will cover basic playwriting structure and be led by local playwrights Mary Burns and David King.
A series of free theatre workshops, led by local mentors, will guide interested youth towards production in November.
To submit your play, sign up for a workshop, or for more information please contact email@example.com. March 31 is the deadline for submissions.
