Budding Writers Enter New Views Playwriting Competition
A group of 13 South Hunsley students were given positive feedback from a popular children’s author as part of the New Views Playwriting Competition.
Christopher William Hill provided constructive comments about the scripts and highlighted what worked well in their writing.
Speaking of one student’s work, Christopher wrote:
“This is a strong and tightly constructed script, switching effortlessly between different time periods to chronicle the slow implosion of a grieving family.”
Another comment on a student’s script he wrote;
“There’s a strong sense of theatricality in this script, an understanding of how the play might look on stage and the impact the unfolding drama would have on the audience. The sense of period is very strong in this new draft, and the characters are more sharply defined, more complicated than before.”
New Views is the National Theatre’s annual playwriting competition for groups of students aged between 14 and 19 in schools and colleges across the country.
Well done to all the budding writers!
