California Young Playwrights Contest Winner–Kirra McColl

on February 24, 2014

Kirra McColl

Kirra McColl wrote A Perfect Home in a Playwrights Project program in her school, Paul Ecke Central Elementary School. Two rats, Edward and Margaret, find their home “over-run” with humans; this forces them to venture from their rural residence into the big city in search of the perfect home.

How did you first get involved in writing?

We’ve been writing every day at school since first grade.

How did you come up with the idea for your script?

The theme I was given was migration so I decided to write about rats.

What themes are involved in your piece?

Migration and the search for a better home.

What is the message you hope the audience takes away with them?

I just want the audience to enjoy my play.

Do you plan to continue writing?

I don’t know what the future holds (I am only 12).

What do you want to be when you grow up?
