Catalyst 2021

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 2021 will take place from 6-10 April. The early-career artists selected will work with an ensemble of professional actors to create new work.

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

This year’s project will consist of a 3 day in-person residency, 2 days of digital workshops and the production of an audio play for Alchymy Festival 2021.
