A short synopsis of our 2022 plays:
Dabble In Lemony by Ainsley Murphy is a fun and suspenseful short play, with a bit of a film noir aesthetic. It follows Willie, who was hired off the streets to supposedly test the food at a fancy restaurant owned by Salvatore Ricci, head of the Ricci family and leader of organized crime in New York.
Blame by Kate Collins shows a young woman’s unfair police interrogation, after having been sexually assaulted at a party.
Around the World and On the Screen by Talya Chepchirchir gives audiences a glimpse into the life of a young director who is trying to write a script and make it in New York, despite severe writer’s block.
Operation : Family Troubles by 5 students from St-George's High School is a comedic piece with a twist, about a family discovering, during a nice dinner out, that their oldest, Lola, is pregnant.
Stay tuned for our The-Write-Stuff 2023 competition!
Details will be posted here.
Congrats to all those who submitted their plays to The-Write-Stuff 2022!
