About the IPC and TreePress
Trinity College London encourages creativity and participation in the arts for people of all ages and all levels. The International Playwriting Competition ran for four years with the aim to encourage new writing for young performers and audiences around the world to engage with. TreePress aims to make theatre globally accessible. Directors can search, compare and licence scripts and resources from anywhere in the world. We are working withTreePress in order for the scripts to be available to a wider audience.
The collections of plays
The best plays entered in the competition were published in a collection. All of the fully printed plays are now online with TreePress. There are a few copies of the published books still available. If you would like one please contact Trinity.
The judging process
Each play submitted was read in its entirety and feedback was made available to all writers. The judging panel consisted of a range of experts in playwriting and theatre including renowned children's theatre playwright David Wood OBE.
