The Flinders University Young Playwrights Award, by State Theatre Company of South Australia, is now open for submissions.
Aspiring writers aged twenty five years and under are encouraged to submit their best original work in the form of a one-act play (not previously performed or published) by Friday 1 June.
Two lucky winners, as selected by the judging panel, will each receive $500 cash and a three play 2012 subscription. They will also receive a week’s script development with a gang of professionals including a director, actors, and a stage manager to workshop and perform the winning work onstage.
Entrants must be available to attend all workshop sessions from 2 – 6 July 2012, as well as the staged reading night of Friday 6 July.Phillip Kavanagh, one of the 2011 winners for his play Plain Jane, is now studying a Graduate Diploma of Dramatic Art (Playwriting) at NIDA.
“The Flinders University Young Playwrights Award was a really terrific experience. Spending a week developing my play with a fantastic group of actors and director was fun, challenging, exciting and rewarding. The play presented in the staged reading was a world away from where it began, and I couldn’t have been happier with the outcome. This is a great opportunity for any young writer looking to further develop their craft, collaborate with talented theatre practitioners, and see their work on stage.”Entry forms and conditions are available on the State Theatre Company website at www.statetheatrecompany.com.au.
