has been discovering and promoting the work of new playwrights since1986.
Over the years it consolidated the role
of the Warehouse Theatre Company
as a powerhouse of new writing.
The IPFwas held in two parts:
The first, a competition with entries
accepted from all over the world
which is judged by a panel of
distinguished theatre practitioners.
The second, a showcase
of the selected plays which is held
in the later half
of each year.
The IPF's international partners,
and Theatro Ena in Cyprus
enabled the work
of selected writers
to be presented across Europe.
