Playwriting Pop-ups

Playwriting Pop-ups

The Abbey Theatre literary team is passionate about getting to know new playwrights. We read and respond to hundreds of scripts each year, as well as seeing productions of new work all over the country. After the success of our Belfast, Limerick and Cork Pop-up workshops, we’re set to head out west. Our next Pop-up will be hosted at the Town Hall Theatre in Galway city on 18 July 2016 from 12pm – 3pm.

These one-day Pop-up events are an opportunity for playwrights to become familiar with our approach to play development at the Abbey Theatre. Our Galway Pop-up will include a playwriting masterclass with playwright Elaine Murphy, as well as a helpful Q&A session with experienced professionals from the world of script development and artistic programming.

If you are a playwright interested in attending our Galway Pop-up event, please send an expression of interest including your writing experience to date to by 27 June 2016.

Places are strictly limited.

If you can’t make it to Galway, but would like to attend in another location, keep an eye on the Abbey Theatre website and social media channels for details of Playwriting Pop-up events in your area.

I have worked in American and European theatre settings, and last year or so attended an Abbey Playwrights Workshop.  All I want to say at this point is that the Abbey people couldn’t be more considerate and interested and encouraging. I look forward to attending the next seminar.
