Tamasha Playwrights Agency

Tamasha Playwrights is a writer-led collective of emerging professional playwrights from diverse backgrounds. Writers are recruited annually via the Tamasha Developing Artists network and undertake a one year attachment with the company, during which time they train as workshop leaders for schools, youth theatres and other community organisations. Currently we have 16 such writers available for hire through the Tamasha Playwrights Agency and we will add to this each and every year.

Our writers are emerging professionals at the start of their careers, selected for the outstanding quality of their work, their entrepreneurial spirit and their suitability to work with young people. All are DBS cleared with certificates and full CVs available on request. The group is personally trained by Tamasha’s Artistic Director Fin Kennedy, who has over ten years’ experience working as a playwright-in-residence in inner city schools.

The diversity of Tamasha Playwrights’ members reflects the range of diasporas found in Britain’s modern cities. Between them our writers have links to India, Pakistan, Somalia, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, Guatemala, Vietnam, China, Guina, Belgium, Germany and Bosnia, among other places – with several bilingual or even trilingual.

We aim to offer diverse role models for young people from a wide range of backgrounds. If you would like a particular writer to appeal to a particular group within your school or community please let us know.

Below are some of the services we offer, but we can also create bespoke products and services in response to individual request.
