LABOO7 is a professional network dedicated to multilingual theatre experiences for young audiences.

It is based on both a deep knowledge of the international contemporary repertoire for youth
and the powerful richness of the sound and song of languages on stage.  Born in Europe in 2007, it's now opening worldwide, also acting as a go-between for all the contemporary forms of playwriting for children and teenagers.

To increase our knowledge of the contemporary playwriting for the youth, LABOO7 reading committee is looking forward to receiving and reading recent plays (written since 2000), especially plays coming from Spain, Greece, Portugal, Hungary, Ireland, Lithuania, Malta, the Czech Republic, Slovaka and Slovenia. They can be aimed to small children, children and teenagers.
