Student researcher: Louise Alexander

Louise's CASE will facilitate access to a specific creative product: Scottish plays. Her industry sponsor, Playwrights’ Studio Scotland, is an organisation committed to promoting and developing writing for live performance.

Information on Scottish plays is not easily accessed--scripts are preserved in various libraries throughout Scotland but no collection is exhaustive nor is there a central information hub. Louise’s research will raise awareness and increase access to new and existing scripts by Scottish writers. Her work will help develop opportunities for supporting playwrights’ career development and audience understanding of the cultural product.
