Miller Performing Arts: Pull Back the Curtain 2018 - Seeking Participants

Youth Scriptwriting Initiative

28/04-26/05/2018

Please note, this programme has been postponed to April/May

The city’s most innovative English-language youth scriptwriting initiative Pull Back the Curtain returns! Join us to put pen to paper and let us help you bring your scriptwriting ideas to life.

In April and May, through a series of four workshops led by professional theatre director and playwright Clare Stearns, Pull Back the Curtain 2018 will guide you towards creating your own original 30-minute theatre piece. This year’s focus is on original award-winning works by playwrights and theatre makers who specialise in historical and political events and individuals, such as Hamilton (Lin-Manuel Miranda), Young Marx (Bean & Coleman), The Laramie Project (Moises Kaufman), Parliament Square (James Fritz), The Scottsboro Boys (Kander & Ebb) and My Name is Rachel Corrie (Viner & Rickman).

At the end of the programme, two scripts will receive a staged reading and the piece with the most promise will be transformed into a theatre production in September 2018. The writers of the selected scripts will meet the director, be invited to rehearsals, and must be available to attend all performances and post-performance Meet the Artist sessions.
