Accelerator (new writing) is a strand of Accelerator which will offer producing and artistic support for playwrights to develop new writing for young audiences over the next three years. After a call out process, the writer we have selected to work with for 2019/20 is Skye Loneragan who will work a new idea for young people called The Turmeric Trail.
We are working in partnership with the Traverse Theatre which means Skye will have the chance to present an early stage version of The Turmeric Trail on 9 November as part of First Stages Festival, the Traverse's new festival of new script-in-hand readings. She will have time with a dramaturg and professional actors to help in the writing and presentation.
After receiving feedback on the rehearsed reading, Skye will have some development time with a larger creative team to create a work in progress in early 2020.
Over to Skye.....
