‘The Playwrights’ is a unique theatrical event, Produced by The Israeli Drama Development Fund, aimed to enable young, original and innovative theater productions. In every event, four new short plays (up to 20 minutes each) are being debuted. The four plays, by four Israeli playwrights, are based on one common subject, elected by the audience through Facebook, and written on one night only. The writers share the writing night, and support each other through the process. After the plays are written, four young teams of directors and actors, are put into a few weeks of action, up to the final debut night in front of the audience. The whole event re-occurs every two months .
Another aim of this project is to establish a community of theater artists, audience and supporters, which will form a base for promotion and development of original Israeli Drama. The incomes will be dedicated to covering costs and to creating a financial fund for the support of Israeli contemporary Drama.
opening night – 3/30/15 in Tzavta
