In 2001, TNS launched Playwrights’ Cove, a development and mentorship programme aimed at nurturing, processing and platforming contemporary playwriting for Singapore theatre. Many of its participants are well-known practitioners and educators today, including Jean Tay, Ng Yi-sheng, Natalie Hennedige, Kenneth Kwok and Matthew Lyon.

The return of Playwrights’ Cove this year will be a six-month playwriting training and mentorship programme led by Resident Playwright Haresh Sharma for 10 selected participants. Each playwright will complete a play by the end of the programme, and will have the play read before a public audience.

We are delighted to announce that Playwrights' Cove 2020 will comprise the following artists:

  • A Yagnya
  • Aswani Aswath  
  • Euginia Tan  
  • Isaac Lim Jue Hao
  • Jaryl George Solomon  
  • Mark Benedict Cheong  
  • Rajkumar Thiagaras  
  • Saleem Hadi
  • Shireen Abdullah
