These playwrights have been immersed in training led by Graham Whybrow, former literary manager of the Royal Court, and taught by playwrights, dramaturges and literary managers. Directed by David Horan, Scripted has a professional cast including graduate actors from The Lir Academy. It offers script-in-hand readings of extracts and is a chance to hear new plays by emerging playwrights.
We would like to thank our Patrons of Playwriting, Jim and Janet Curley for their support of Scripted 2021.
