New writing and directing talent

Sgript i Lwyfan is a Welsh language new writing and directing scheme for young people.

Got something to say?

Interested in pushing the boundaries of Welsh theatre?

Are you between 16 and 25 yrs old and want support and inspiration to develop your idea further? Maybe this is the scheme for you…

In partnership with Literature Wales and Urdd Gobaith Cymru, this is a golden opportunity for 4 writers and 2 directors to develop new work under the expert guidance of professional mentors, dramatists, directors and actors.

We’re looking for a variety of styles and voices – go for it!

What talent! Cwmni Frân Wen and Aled Jones Williams have, and are, doing really valuable work. Can't wait to hear more work from these aspiring and talented young playwrights. There is hope for Welsh language theatre.

Wow!! Great to see so much young talent being staged. Fab!!
