The Virgin Labfest 10 Writing Fellowship Program is a two-week mentorship program on the study and practice of dramatic writing for the stage. The Fellowship Program is part of the Cultural Center’s desire to train young aspiring playwrights. It consists of lectures, script critiquing, writing sessions and interactions with known playwrights, directors and selected actors.
The ten (10) fellows accepted to the Program will be mentored by Glenn Sevilla Mas, a multi award-winning playwright, and will be given an access pass to all Virgin Labfest 10 plays and selected rehearsals as part of their mentorship. The Fellowship Program will conclude in a stage reading of the fellows’ works directed by Dennis Marasigan on July 6, 2014 at the CCP Bulwagang Amado Hernandez at 6PM. This culminating program is free of charge and open to the public.
The Virgin Labfest is a highly distinguished annual festival of unpublished, unstaged, untried and untested works of playwrights, directors and actors. It has gained its reputation by producing provocative and outstanding ‘virgin’ plays mostly which have been recognized by the Palanca Awards for Literature. The Virgin Labfest 10 Writing Fellowship Program is part of the Center’s desire to train young aspiring playwrights.
The Virgin Labfest 10 Writing Fellowship Program is a project of the CCP Artist Training Division of the Arts Education Department.
