International Youth Playwriting Program
Young People’s Theatre (YPT), Britain’s Action Transport Theatre and Australia’s Ryde Youth Theatre are thrilled to partner on Three Up, an international program for young writers aged 13-17. YPT is looking for four young people from the GTA with a passion for writing and interest in building their skills to be part of this six month international collaboration. The Three Up program provides the opportunity for youth to reach beyond their own borders to build community with peers from the UK and Australia while working with professional, local and international playwrights and facilitators.
In-person sessions will take place on Thursdays from 6PM to 8PM on the following dates:
December – Dec. 14, 2017
January – Jan 11, 2018 and Jan 25, 2018
February – Feb 8, 2018 and Feb 22, 2018
March – Mar 8, 2018 and Mar 22, 2018
April – April 5, 2018 and April 19, 2018

There will be a final session with a presentation in the week of June 11, 2018, date to be determined.
In-person meetings will occur with YPT facilitators and the four Canadian participants at YPT (165 Front Street, Toronto). The purpose of these meetings will be to provide instruction on playwriting, discuss ongoing collaborative work with international partners, monitor progress and share completed works.
