Press release

Young and Hungry
Playwrights commission

Young and Hungry Arts trust is currently seeking to commission playwrights of any age to create work that is acted, designed and admired by 15-25 year olds, and that we'll consider for production in the Young and Hungry Festival of New Works 2007.

* We will select five playwrights from the overall submissions to write a 60 minute play based around the theme AMBITION to the first draft stage.

* The play must have at least 6 characters and a special appeal to people aged 15-25.

* We will provide the 5 playwrights with a dramaturge to mentor them from their initial submission idea to the development of their first draft.

* A panel of four industry practitioners assesses the first 5 drafts scripts. 3 playwrights are selected from the initial 5 to be commissioned to a final draft.

Submissions are due October 31 2005.

For more information about how to make a submission please visit our website or Phone Producer Angela Meyer on 04 3858227.
