Since the early days of Young & Hungry, we have been supporting young writers develop their craft via our Y&H Playwrights initiative.
In 2017, Y&H Playwrights was put on pause, and we tried out a few other things (Monday Meets and workshops). We are now taking the best from the Playwrights initiative and creating a new version, Y&H Playful. Playful is currently in development and planned for roll out (funding dependent) in 2021.
Just so you know, the original Y&H Playwrights was a script development process that fed into the successful Y&H Festival of New Theatre. It involved dramaturgy by established script writers, script workshops by Y&H actors followed by some commissioned work that moved into production in the Festival.
