Does your theatre have a commitment to developing new work? If so, let us know and we’ll post the information
If you are a playwright, please send a biography and photo, or update the information that is already there.
We are always seeking articles and interviews about the process of creating new plays.
You can now search our diverse Community by profession and country to identify practitioners who create and support new plays for young audiences around the world.
Our search engine is always a useful shortcut to finding what you need.
Though an English-language site, we will post information in your first language as well as English.
Best Wishes, Deirdre, Tony, and Kim

Not only that, there’s an excitement in international Theatre for Young Audiences right now, with new initiatives and great networking opportunities rolled out by ASSITEJ and its National Centres and Artistic Networks.
