“Playwriting Milano is a visionary, clever and exciting project “
Neil McPherson, Finborough Theatre
TEENS is one of the main projects that form the Milano Playwriting Festival. Is opened to theatre schools and high schools (age 13-19) from Italy and abroad. It offers them new plays commissioned by MPF itself or previously written by the most interesting playwrights. In our 2015 edition we offered 4 plays from Uk exciting playwright Jane Wainwright. For our 2017 Edition we offered to schools 2 plays written by Sarah Page and Daisy Campbell. In 2018 we offered Jim Cartwright’s play Mobile Phone Show.
The TEENS‘s main objective is to offer the best new writing to the students and make them realize how crucial are the script and the playwright in the theatrical creative process.
During Milano Playwriting Festival students and their teachers had the chance to meet their “own playwright” in a friendly Q & A (2015 video). In 2017′s edition they have taken part in initiatives aiming at getting them acquainted with the writing’s creative process and at discovering new talents: our Playwriting Scheme and LARP (Live Action Role Play). In 2018′s edition we went back to our original formula: offering an high quality play + discussion with playwright + play’s staging during a Festival.
