The much-awaited TheatreWorks’ 24-Hour Playwriting Competition is back! This unique Competition marks a milestone this year as we celebrate its 20th edition!
The site of the competition has always been quirky and inspiring, and it is no exception this year. To be held at the rustically inspiring Kampung Kampus, Home of Ground-Up Initiative, the site is surrounded by lush greenery and fertile ground – a place for developing and practising sustainable living methods.
Who knows, these 24 hours at Kampung Kampus may not only inspire your writing, but it may also change your perception and attitude to life. Especially with the advent of climate change, the advent of global populist and protectionist trends, how are we to respond? Can we, in our own ways, make an impact?
The competition, as in previous years, is a platform to discover potential playwrights in our midst. One of the winners will have his / her play developed by theatre professionals and produced in full. This production will be taken on a performance tour to the South East District in the first quarter of 2018.
