This year’s festival will again pay special attention to developing and promoting the creativity of young authors. At the Day of the Nominees – the Young Playwright Award, we will have a chance to gain in-depth knowledge of this year’s nominated texts and their authors.

Together with dramaturg Ula Talija Pollak, director Bor Ravbar will prepare reading performances of the nominated text by Brina Jenček, Jaka Smerkolj Simoneti and Tilen Oblak.
