Have an idea for a play?
Liberate your ideas at the 24-Hour Playwriting Competition 2013

Whether armed with a pen and paper, a laptop or a typewriter, participants are given the challenge to write a play within 24 hours.

The competition provides a platform to liberate ideas and to create new writing; and what better place to inspire the spirit of liberation than at the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall? Reopened to the public in October 2011, the Memorial Hall traces Dr. Sun's revolutionary activities in the Southeast Asian region and highlights the impact of the 1911 Chinese Revolution on Singapore as well as Singapore's contributions to the Revolution.

One of the winning plays will be treated to a full production and taken on a performance tour of 10 venues in the South East District in 2013/2014.

Organised by TheatreWorks Writers’ Laboratory in collaboration with South East Community Development Council (CDC), the 24-Hour Playwriting Competition is in its 16th year! The competition is a popular annual event in Singapore.
