Mayo Young Playwrights Onstage at The Linenhall

Following a series of six fortnightly intensive workshops by our terrific team of mentors, five young playwrights honed their playwriting skills to write and develop their short plays. In the process they learned the essential skills of great dialogue, stunning character and engaging plot structure.

Sustained applause and acclaim!

Two professional directors with a cast of professional actors rehearsed and stage read the five plays to sustained applause and acclaim by an appreciative audience at The Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar on 22 May 2022.

“Theatre is a collaborative process,” said Paul Soye, project coordinator, “and our five young writers were able to work with the professionals during rehearsals, and then see their work come to life onstage.”
