Selection Panel: Jim Culleton from Fishamble, Bevin Cody from ESB, Manchán Magan, Annabelle Comyn, Gavin Kostick, Hanora Burke, and Jeda de Brí.
Jim Culleton, Artistic Director of Fishamble, said: “We were hugely impressed by the standard of submissions for this Tiny Plays challenge. We believe that the arts has a huge role to play in driving the change that is needed to create a more sustainable world for us all. We were delighted to partner with ESB on this initiative, and to give a platform to playwrights to address one of the biggest challenges we all face, and are very excited now to bring some of these plays to life on the stage.”
‘Tiny Plays for A Brighter Future’ was conceived as an opportunity to give creative expression to all points of view in the transition to a low carbon energy future: to look at the choices we all must make to meet our future climate goals, examine how those choices will impact communities across Ireland, and imagine what we want the Ireland of our future to be, through 600-word Tiny Plays.
Pat O’Doherty, Chief Executive of ESB, said: “ESB has a long heritage in supporting the arts, and believe that the arts play a significant role in both documenting, and harnessing social change. This unique partnership with Fishamble recognises the important role that theatre and the written or spoken word can play in communicating the opportunities and complexities of Ireland’s transition to a low carbon energy future. We would like to congratulate the shortlisted playwrights, and indeed everyone who took the time to capture their vision for a brighter future in just 600 words”
