SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATES ANNOUNCED FOR HAMPSTEAD THEATRE’S INSPIRE: THE NEXT PLAYWRIGHT PROGRAMME

SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATES ANNOUNCED FOR HAMPSTEAD THEATRE’S INSPIRE: THE NEXT PLAYWRIGHT PROGRAMME

Hampstead Theatre’s Inspire: The Next Playwright Programme is a free opportunity for 18 – 25 year-old aspiring playwrights to develop their ideas, talent and craft under the mentorship of award-winning playwright Roy Williams over the course of a year.

Hampstead received over 400 applications and the successful applicants are Destinée Bishop, Geraldine Lang, Eno Mfon and Holly Robinson.

Roy Williams comments:

‘I’m excited and proud to be working with Destinée, Geraldine, Eno and Holly over the next year. If their energy and enthusiasm towards creating fresh, challenging and entertaining theatre is anything to go by, the future of playwriting looks very bright indeed - but this is only as long as we keep investing, protecting and supporting the voices of tomorrow. I met plenty of other talented candidates with the same vigour and wish we could give every aspiring playwright the same opportunity. I’d like to thank Hampstead Theatre, who have always championed new writing, for inviting me to be the first mentor of what I hope, funding permitting, will be an enduring and important contributor to the development of British playwriting.’
