In Studio Today :: The SCrIBE Script Writing Competition - Sam de Romijin
Today we had Sam de Romijin in studio alking to us about the SCrIBE Scropt Writing Competition.
The SCrIBE Script Writing Competition is open to playwrights who are South African residents, over the age of 21 and living in the Western Cape. The winning script will be produced for a run in Cape Town from 22 October to 3 November.
The 2012 Scribe initiative is the inaugural competition and will be an annual event. It is the brainchild of the Imbewu Trust, a non-profit organisation set up to nurture and promote the contemporary theatre industry, providing a platform for new works as well as showcasing the best of South African theatre on an international stage. The Imbewu Trust was founded by highly acclaimed director and teacher Paul Griffiths, who has worked extensively in South Africa and the UK; Sam de Romijn, who is a seasoned theatre teacher, performer and stage manager; and accountant and business consultant Paul Dickson. It has established a number of programmes including an international showcase in New York, USA, and a bursary to enable graduates of the Waterfront Theatre School to produce a production at the National Arts Festival.
