Penguin's Spinebreakers.co.uk launches The Glass Menagerie Script-Writing Competition in association with the Young Vic.

Penguin's online teen book community Spinebreakers has launched a Script-Writing Competition with the Young Vic theatre themed around Tennessee Williams' play "The Glass Menagerie."

2010-09-18
LONDON, ENGLAND, September 18, 2010 (Press-News.org) Penguin's online teen book community Spinebreakers has partnered with the Young Vic theatre to launch a script-writing competition themed around Tennessee Williams' play "The Glass Menagerie." The competition launches on the 16th of September 2010 and will be open for entries from UK residents aged 13-18 until the 31st of October 2010.

Many GCSE and A-Level students study "The Glass Menagerie" as an autobiographical play by Tennessee Williams and in keeping with this theme, the competition invites teenagers to submit one scene of a play they have written inspired by family life.

All entries will be read and judged by Young Vic Artistic Director David Lan, The Glass Menagerie Director, Jo Hill-Gibbins and Spinebreakers Editor Danielle Innes. There will be one winner who will be the entrant that, in the opinion of the judges, has submitted the best script depicting family life.

The prize for the winner will be a pair of exclusive invites to the Press Night and opening party of Young Vic's The Glass Menagerie on Thursday 17th November 2010, plus a programme and a copy of the Penguin Modern Classics edition of The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams.

The competition can be entered on Penguin's teen website spinebreakers.co.uk and selected entries will be published on both Spinebreakers.co.uk and the Young Vic Theatre's website.

Danielle Innes, Editor of Spinebreakers said, "I'm really looking forward to judging the entries for The Glass Menagerie Script-Writing Competition. It is a fascinating play text to study, amazing to see produced on stage and for teenagers to be given the opportunity to write their own script inspired by family life for this competition is a fantastic way for them to practically learn more about what it was like for Tennessee Williams to write this seminal play about his own real life."

The Glass Menagerie Script-Writing Competition will run from 16/09/2010 to 31/10/2010 and is open to UK residents aged 13-18. Entry is on Spinebreakers.co.uk.

The Glass Menagerie is at the Young Vic from 11 November 2010 - 1 January 2011 with tickets from GBP10. For further information visit http://www.youngvic.org or call 0207 922 2922.
