Writer needs your love (stories)

Award-winning Irish playwright Henry Martin seeks real love stories for his next play, My Irish Love Song, which will premiere in 2018. Stories can be any length and submitted on until August 2017.
Henry Martin: “My Irish Love Song is a celebration of love, music and being Irish. The world is very divided right now and the news is full of stories of woe. I hope My Irish Love Song will be an antidote to this and remind us that more unites us than divides us. There is nothing more universal than love and music, and theatre is a great a way to bring people together and prove this point.” 
“Everybody has a love story. Some end happy. Some end sad. Some never end. This is an opportunity for you to take time out and think about that someone or something special, and to have it immortalized in art. All kinds of love stories are encouraged, and no, you don’t have to have an Irish passport to submit: this project is about being open and encouraging shared stories, not putting up barriers.” 
Stories can be submitted (anonymously, if desired) on The website also includes writing tips, information on the creative team, and terms and conditions. 
Henry Martin is a writer based in Tipperary. He is currently taking part in Belltable:Connect in Limerick, and his work has been performed by Fishamble, Arcola Theatre, Theatre 503, Latitude, and the Roundhouse in London. His biography Agnes Martin: Painter Pioneer Icon is published by Schaffner Press in 2018.
