In light of the current health emergency we have been assessing all upcoming RTYDS activity and recruitment, and in particular thinking about the 18-Month Residency and Three-Month Placements and how to proceed.

Given the level of uncertainty, we have taken the difficult decision to pause the selection process for 18-Month Residencies and for theatres to apply for Three Month Placements. We understand this will be disappointing news and want to reassure you that we remain committed to providing opportunities that support regional theatres, directors / theatre makers and the industry as a whole.

We are speaking regularly to our partner theatres and will continue to monitor the situation closely, with the intention of being able to provide further updates in the summer. We remain committed to providing 18-Month Residencies at Live Theatre Newcastle, Curve Theatre Leicester, Contact Theatre Manchester and Birmingham Repertory Theatre.

Keep in touch by following us on social media, as well as signing up to our e-newsletter so that we can keep everyone up to date.  Over the coming months we will be building on the learning content you can find on our website and providing creative development opportunities on digital platforms.
