Young Writers Showcase at The Gate Theatre in Dublin

Eight writers come together as part of the Gateways Programme

On Thursday, 9 May 2024, the Gate Theatre in Dublin held a showcase highlighting the creative work from eight young writers that emerged from the Gateways and Fighting Words project.

The group engaged in collaborative efforts over several weeks to formulate responses to THE PULL OF THE STARS, alongside Louise Melinn, Project Administrator, mentors from Fighting Words and the cast and crew of the production, including Úna Kavanagh and Eadaoin Fox.
