YOUNG PLAYWRIGHTS PROGRAMME
Presented by Graffiti Theatre Company as part of Fighting Words
Six Months ago the Young Playwrights Programme brought together nine aspiring young writers to develop and hone scriptwriting skills, supported by professional playwright mentors John McCarthy and Katie Holly at Graffiti Theatre Company as part of Fighting Words Cork. The project culminates in a presentation of their work as staged readings, involving professional actors and directors, at The Everyman for Cork Midsummer Festival, in association with the Landmark Productions and Everyman premiere of Asking for It. The process which these young people have engaged with was truly transformative, far more powerful than the simple assembly of words on pages.
