Young Playwrights Dublin - Onstage at The Peacock!

Young Playwrights Dublin April 2022
The 2021-2022 Dublin Young Playwrights at the Peacock Theatre, 22 April 2022

Congratulations to the 2021-2022 Dublin Young Playwrights!

Our brilliant team of writing mentors worked with eight brilliant young writers this year, spending Sundays and school holidays developing their ideas and refining their scripts. 

Actors and directors from our partners at the Abbey Theatre performed each of the plays as a rehearsed reading on Friday, 22 April on the Peacock stage.

"It was wonderful to see a collection of new and exciting voices brought to life on the Peacock stage," said Robyn Gill, one of the Young Playwrights Programme mentors and an alumnus of the programme. "All the young playwrights should be immensely proud of the creativity and hard work which was evident in the plays produced."

Congratulations to all the playwrights -
