Catalyst 2020

Catalyst is the cornerstone of our commitment to new writing for the theatre.  This residential project offers in-depth professional development to young writers and directors aged 18-25.

Catalyst 2020 will take place from 23 March – 3 April. The nine early-career artists selected will work with an ensemble of professional actors to create new work, with extracts to be presented as part of Alchymy Festival 2020.

The Catalyst Writers will be mentored by Tom Brennan and Sam Potter, and the Catalyst Directors will be mentored by Ria Parry and John Hoggarth.
