This day long workshop is an opportunity for emerging/early career directors to discover more about the director/writer relationship in a session lead by director Lyndsey Turner. Directors will explore the process of working with a writer on a new play, from commissioning to rehearsal.
We bring together emerging directors with the UK’s leading regional theatre companies. We are particularly focused on directors who live outside London and are from communities presently under-represented in theatre.
Founded in 1960, the scheme has helped the development of many of the best directors in British theatre including: Trevor Nunn (RSC and National Theatre), Michael Boyd (RSC), Rupert Goold (Almeida), Lorne Campbell (Northern Stage), Elizabeth Newman (Octagon Theatre, Bolton) John Tiffany and Vicky Featherstone (Royal Court), Natalie Ibu (Tiata Fahodzi) and Matthew Xia (Manchester Royal Exchange).
