Playwrights' Bootcamp

48 hours of frantic writing + 6 hours of non-stop rehearsals and development = ???

More than a writing exercise, Playwrights’ Bootcamp is the ultimate test of craft and creativity. Three Chinese-language playwrights are challenged to produce a script in two days. The finished works are given to three directors, who will work with actors and sound artists to bring them to life online. 

There’s just one catch… the playwrights cannot communicate with the directors until AFTER the works have undergone the ultimate test: the audience’s scrutiny. 

There’s no time to overthink… Playwrights’ Bootcamp is back!

Festival: Patch! A (Live) Theatre Festival of Play

“The performance ended with us impressed by what each team had achieved in such a short amount of time, knowing that this was no easy feat to complete, let alone do well. In allowing their creativity to run wild with total freedom limited only by time, Playwrights’ Bootcamp is a fascinating display of how the right amount of pressure can lead to some truly original work, and how the art of play produces concrete results.” – Bakchormeeboy
