Thursday May 28th will see the celebration of the Scripts Ireland Competition which ran from early May and will now culminate in an online performance and selection of the outright winners.
After initially receiving over 70 entries, the three selected finalists were chosen. They were: Lesley Conroy, Jemma Curran and Mick Donnellan. These finalists went through an online/remote one-on-one mentoring session with playwright Eugene O’Brien. Each script was critically analysed and intensely workshopped and the writers were tasked with editing and improving the work to a professional standard.
You now have the opportunity to watch these three new exciting works of theatre performed by Carolyn Bracken, Aaron Monaghan and Clare Monnelly and directed by Jim Culleton (Fishamble Theatre).
This will be followed by a discussion panel with Jesse Weaver (Abbey Theatre), Gina Moxley, Eugene O’Brien and Phillip McMahon.
It will be a free online event, open to everyone, from all over the world. If you would like to be part of this special evening then please click on the following link at 8.30pm on Thursday evening 28th of May.
