Third Year student qualifies for Young Playwrights’ Programme 2019


Congratulations to Third Year student Cian Walsh who has successfully gained one of eight prestigious places on the Young Playwrights’ Programme organised by Fighting Words at Graffiti Theatre Company. The programme will culminate in a Staged Reading of their work at The Everyman by professional actors and directors, as part of the Cork Midsummer Festival 2019.

This is a fantastic opportunity for any budding writer. Cian was offered a place based on a piece he wrote to display his creative writing skills.

The Young Playwrights’ Programme will run from January to June and will include script development workshops, opportunities to attend selected performances for FREE at the Everyman, play a role as Delegate at the Cork Midsummer Festival with access to selected performances & ‘Behind the Scenes’ look at production as well as a Staged Reading of the scripted work in the Cork Midsummer Festival at The Everyman (June).

We wish Cian all the best in the Programme.
