Description

Martin Lysicrates Prize in 2019 - HOME SCHOOL GROUP

National Theatre of Parramatta and The Lysicrates Foundation proudly presents The Martin Lysicrates Prize 2019 for playwrights writing for young people.

In this free event, students will be empowered to decide what they get to see on our stages!

The prize, intended to support playwrights, provides an opportunity for finalists to receive professional development and funding support, and exactly who gets that support is up to the very people the plays are written for (11 – 14 year olds). Students will see the first act of 3 finalist plays presented as dramatic readings by professional actors, after which the winner will be decided on by the students’ votes only. No adults are allowed to vote.

Inspired by the Ancient Greek theatre festivals, born out of democracy, where the audience decided a winner, The Martin Lysicrates Prize is a fun, interactive and entertaining experience for students, giving them scope to learn more about the History of Drama and Theatre as well as developing their interest in Creative Writing and live theatre.
