“Milano Playwriting Festival 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. 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.
Main objective of the TEENS 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). They have also taken part in other initiatives with the aim of strengthening their awareness on the new writing importance and to scout new talents.
