Unprecedented Third Monthly Reading at Playwright’s Workshop Trinbago

Never before, in the 15-year history of the Playwrights Workshop Trinbago’s (PWT) Monthly Readers Theatre Series 2018, has a third reading been held in one month.

PWT is proud to announce that after reading eight scripts thus far in May 2018, there are more student scripts to be read on May 16th to complete this month’s installment. The student playwrights are enrolled in the Department of Creative and Festival Arts (DCFA) at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine.

These students, in a course guided by Tony Hall, have been engaged for the semester in studying different approaches to playwriting and play construction mainly for the stage. Their course of study, which embraces the writing of short play scripts, is aimed at entry level, even though some have more experience in the craft than others.

Come out to support the student playwrights in our midst who are eager to have their scripts read before the end of the semester. There will be discussions with all the playwrights right after the readings.

The Playwrights Workshop Trinbago, in partnership with the Trinidad Theatre Workshop and Trinidad and Tobago Performing Arts Network, is inviting actors, playwrights, directors, producers and the general public to this historical reading to provide the students, our future playwrights, with feedback, to further develop their scripts.

The event will be held on Wednesday 16th May 2018, 7PM at the Trinidad Theatre Workshop, 6 Newbold Street, St Clair. Admission is FREE but Space Is Limited.

Come one. Come all. Bring a friend.
