Young Playwrights’ Showcase

Our Showcase is closed for this year. Please join our mailing list to get announcements about future Showcases and other activities.


Open to anyone aged 13 – 18 years old, the showcase aims to give young writers the opportunity to create a 10 – 20 minute piece which will be performed by our youth section at a future date.

Guidelines will be provided to help our young writers with their creative writing along with the chance to work with an adult mentor throughout the process.

Here is Connie, one of our Youth Ambassadors (and the person who came up with the idea) to tell you all about it:


  1. The piece will be themed (each year having a different theme) – how you choose to interpret the theme is up to you!
  2. The piece must be written for a cast size of 1 – 5
  3. Minimum of 10 minutes with maximum of 20 minutes running time
  4. The piece must be performable at The Mill with minimal props and no set
