Are you a creative young Black person interested in playwriting? Are you passionate about theatre and Black British culture?

Anthem is an exciting new playwriting project for aspiring Black writers aged 16-25, inspired by Lolita Chakrabarti’s new play Hymn.

You will have the opportunity to take part in a series of free writing masterclasses with established writers, including Lolita Chakrabarti. The masterclasses are aimed at introducing and developing the skills and approaches you need to develop as a playwright.

Everyone involved in the project will also have the opportunity to access a live streamed performance of Hymn for free.

A second phase of the project will give the opportunity to a selection of writers to be involved in a series of workshops and mentoring to develop a short play of their own for a new anthology.

If you feel you have something to say and your voice could contribute to the Anthem of your generation apply below.
