Playwriting Project at the Abbey Theatre 2018

Readings of seven short plays, devised and scripted by teenage writers, took place on Thursday 29th March on the Abbey stage.The Reading was the culmination of a long-term project, in collaboration with the Abbey Theatre, and the sixth year Fighting Words volunteers have mentored a group of young playwrights.

It all started on a Sunday morning in September when the writers and mentors met for the first workshop and the theme of Connections emerged. Seven months later their scripts were performed by an amazing cast, under the direction of Jim Culleton and Jeda de Bri. It was a spectacular afternoon at the Abbey.
