Whoop ‘n’ Wail are delighted to announce the six successful playwrights for their February showcase:
Whoop ‘n’ Wail Represents…Desire.
We have been absolutely delighted with the response to our open submission brief, with almost seventy brand new plays from all over the world winging their way to the Whoop ‘n’ Wail submissions inbox.
Our reading team received scripts from Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, the UK and the USA, and were overwhelmed by the innovation and talent shown by the writers as they generously shared their work.
After a lot of hard work, thought and soul-searching – as well as a few heated debates – the final six are:
Nice Jumper by Dan Page (UK)
The Hidden Room by Patricia Reynoso (USA)
The Work-Love Balance by Tom Jensen (UK)
Three AM by Barbara Blumenthal-Ehrlich (USA)
Would You Let Me Finish? by Leon Kaye (USA)
Heart’s Desire by Ali Kemp & Deborah Klayman (UK)
Congratulations to our successful writers
