CALLING ALL PLAYWRIGHTS!
interested in writing plays for
Young Audiences & Families
Kompany Family Theatre, in association with Alberta Playwrights’ Network, is pleased to announce our
2015 NEW WORKS FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES PLAYWRIGHTS CIRCLE
This circle is for playwrights (emerging or established) who are interested in developing work suitable for young audiences and/or families. The play can be at any stage of development – a full draft, a few scenes or even just an idea. A small group of no more than five playwrights per session will be selected to participate in this workshop based upon the suitability of their proposed work, their goals around developing their work and their desire to share the development process with others.
PLAYWRIGHT CIRCLE ELEMENTS
Over the course of the full circle, playwrights can expect to develop their plays under the guidance of renowned educator, director and dramaturge, Stephen Heatley, as well as through feedback from other participants, readings by professional actors and reaction and feedback from your intended audience.
