Playwrights b4 25 Competition 2016  

For the past five years emerging and first time playwrights have had their submitted plays read by professionals and many have won development time to improve their work. Playmarket is again searching for the best plays from young New Zealand writers. If you’re under 25 and you have a new play, we’d love to read it. 

We’re looking for writers under 25 who take risks and throw care to the wind, as well as those who write strong, conventional plays. Write about anything you like that matters to you in any way you like, for any kind of audience you like. There are absolutely no restrictions in style or content. Whether it’s a full-length monologue or an epic for a cast of thousands, a comedy or a gritty urban tragedy, we’re interested in what you have to say. 

Playwrights b4 25 has a proven track record of nurturing young writers to successful seasons of their work both in New Zealand and internationally – you could be next.  

This competition is open to any New Zealand citizen/permanent resident aged 24 and under at time of application.  

Plays entered into this competition may have had a production – either amateur or professional. 

Apart from this, there are no rules! 

Submissions close 1 April 2016
