New Ghosts Theatre Company launches IGNITE COLLECTIVE, a ground-breaking initiative that partners emerging and established female playwrights and creatives to create works for female actors, between the ages of 20-30.
New Ghosts has been creating and presenting high quality new works in the independent sector for the last 4 years, and throughout this time we have recognised that roles currently being written for women are predominantly either of mothers (30+) or teenagers (14-19), with few works written for women in the 20-30 age bracket. In our history of auditions, we have seen 3 females for every 1 male competing for roles of this age. Through our IGNITE initiative NEW GHOSTS is committed to creating new works to fill this industry gap.
These writers will create new works for the strong, creative and talented women, that we are now on a mission to bring into this collective.
