Catalyst is the cornerstone of our commitment to new writing for the theatre. This project offers in-depth professional development to early-career writers and directors. To those selected, we offer the chance to work with an ensemble of professional actors, and highly experienced writing and directing mentors in a safe and supportive space, to hone their craft, develop and showcase their new scripts. Places are strictly limited, and the work is intensive, challenging and exciting.
This residency culminates in the Catalyst Showcase: a very special sharing of extracts from six new plays performed by a professional ensemble. Watch this space for the full programme announcement.
With thanks St Edward’s School for their generous support.
