The Baptiste Programme: First Look Readings

The Baptiste Programme

Come along to work-in-progress readings of brand new first full length plays by Dagogo Hart Dagogo, Esosa Ighodaro, Ikenna Anyabuike and Nandi Jola. An opportunity to catch early draft development scripts from exciting new contemporary voices in Irish theatre. The Baptiste Programme is a paid and mentored script development programme for Black Irish theatre makers and writers of colour. The programme is named after the 18th century Black Irish singer Rachel Baptiste, who performed to great acclaim at Smock Alley.
