Nuori Näyttämö project awarded

On 10th of August Nuori Näyttämö youth theatre project received the Kiitos kotimaisesta näytelmästä -award (->Thank you for a Finnish play) by Finnish Playwrights and Screenwriters Guild. It is mainly for producing four new plays for youth by Anna Krogerus, Tove Appelgren, Ari-Pekka Lahti and Tuomas Timonen but also for executing the originally English concept successfully. The voluntary work of the Advisory Panel, that I’m chairing, is also mentioned.

The award is of course very encouraging in respect of the future. Nuori Näyttämö is already planning the next round of playwrights, plays, theatres, youth theatre groups and festivals for 2018, after which it should turn into a permanent triennale…
