Last year was the start of a new and exciting partnership between Fighting Words and Mermaid. For the first time in Wicklow aspiring young playwrights were invited to join us for a series of workshops from September to March working towards writing their own short plays for two actors. The process included mentorship from theatre makers and regular theatre visits. We are delighted to bring the young writers’ pieces to the Mermaid stage with a professional cast and director for a rehearsed reading of their work.
Want to see just how talented these Wicklow youths are? Then make sure to get a ticket for a hugely impressive afternoon of new works.
