Dramaturgy at Tinderbox

Tinderbox has an in-house Dramaturg providing dramaturgical support to all productions, development processes and our participatory projects.

The Tinderbox Dramaturg is the first port of call for writers, aspiring dramaturgs and academics and you can contact Hanna on hanna.slattne@tinderbox.org.uk.

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 writing for the stage or theatre in Northern Ireland we will try to respond and point you in the right direction.
