Performed by young people from north Leitrim and Fermanagh, the performance is the result of creative collaborations and has emerged from a 6 month series of workshops between the Senior and Junior Manorhamilton Youth Theatre and a youth drama group based at Enniskillen Royal Grammar School.

The authors of three selected plays will go to be mentored by professional playwrights, Nicola Spendlove, Jim Nolan, and Martina Collender who will help them perfect their ideas. The programme concludes with a rehearsed reading of the selected works during The Lit Festival 2020. WYA will also stage its Works in Progress series, presenting two showcases. One will be created and curated entirely by WYA’s 15- to 19-year old members who will write, stage, direct and perform their own performances.
