Summary of New Plays for 2021
Playshare is a curated compendium of plays suitable for youth theatre groups and available through Youth Theatre Ireland.
With the addition of 10 new plays in 2021, the collection now boasts 135 plays. These include one-acts, issue-based dramas, comedies, classical adaptations plus several pantomimes and musicals.
All Playshare scripts have been written specifically for young people. They vary in length, content and style, and all have been produced by a youth theatre or similar group, at least once.
The Playshare resource is open to the public both nationally and internationally. If you are a producer or director, you can first request an excerpt of a play text for review and then a full copy of the play.
Postage and packaging maybe charged for this service. PLEASE NOTE: Copyright for all plays remains with the authors. Permission must be granted prior to production.
Youth theatres that are affiliated to Youth Theatre Ireland can apply for a contribution towards the cost of performance rights for Playshare plays under our Perform YT Scheme. For more information please click here.
