Dramaturgy at Tinderbox

Tinderbox is proud to have had for many years, an in-house Dramaturg providing dramaturgical support to all productions, development processes and our participatory projects. Hanna Slattne was the first port of call at Tinderbox for writers, aspiring dramaturgs and academics until the end of June 2017.

Our script reading service is currently suspended until further notice however, we are interested to hear from writers from and living in Northern Ireland even if we can no longer provide in depth written feedback.

At Tinderbox our door is always open so if you have any questions about dramaturgy, new work and new writing for the stage or theatre in Northern Ireland, and we will try to respond and point you in the right direction.

For news and opportunities for writers and theatre makers, please follow our Facebook and Twitter pages, or join our mailing list.
