The Playwrights’ Boot Camp returns in August! The Playwrights’ Boot Camp held its inaugural run in 2010. It provides a platform that gives aspiring writers a chance to sharpen their skills. Throughout the four weeks of Boot Camp, the guiding principle is that of “play”. Playwrights will pen scripts based on a given topic and have a week to hand in their “assignments”. Thereafter, within a day, three directors will read through the scripts, pick their cast from a pool of actors, rehearse for six hours, and then perform, under the intense scrutiny of a live audience that same evening. The very next week, the whole process starts all over again! Within the imposed limits of time and resource, we hope that these ‘Boot Campers’ will find a way to stretch their creativity beyond their own boundaries!
Our theatre should aspire to objectively critique life, respectfully entertain audiences, and forever explore new uncharted territories. Based on this basic consensus, we shall debate among ourselves vigorously as we support each other loyally.
