24-Hour Playwriting Competition 2015
at the Institute of Mental Health

The annual TheatreWorks 24-Hour Playwriting Competition is here again. This 18th edition will be held on the weekend of 6 & 7 June 2015. 

And this year's site of inspiration? The Institute of Mental Health or IMH. Known for its lush greenery and peaceful grounds, the IMH provides a serene and calm environment which may offer fresh inspirations and ideas that you may just be looking for! 

One of the winners from this year's competition will have his/her winning play developed by theatre professionals into a full production. This production will be taken on a performance tour to the South East District in the first quarter of 2016. 

This an opportunity not to be missed especially if you are brimming with ideas for a play and looking to test your mettle in writing a play in 24 hours. Sign up today!
