Playwrights Hub

Playwrights Hub

During the Tiger Dublin Fringe we present the Playwrights Hub.

A space for playwrights to question, craft and create.

Join the Abbey Theatre Literary Team at the Irish Writers’ Centre for a series of curated workshops, facilitated by Michael West.

Find out more about how the Abbey Theatre develops new plays. Bounce some ideas off them or get the facts about submitting your work. Spend time on the nuts and bolts of your trade and take the chance to develop some new ideas with the help of established theatre makers.


Any interested writers will need to send an expression of interest and their writing experience to

As the places for the Hub are strictly limited, the deadline for expression of interest will be August 21 and we will contact all applicants with the decisions by August 28.

We will run the Playwrights Hub from 2 – 5pm on the 8th, 9th and 10th of September in the Irish Writers’ Centre.

There will be three groups of 10 playwrights and each group will have a 3 hour workshop with an established theatre maker.
