If you’re interested in directing in Spring 2018, read on…

Process:

  1. Pitches open – prospective directors to register interest on contact form
  2. Pitching questionnaire – prospective directors to complete (by 21 October)
  3. Interviews – prospective directors meet with Chair (21 – 29 October)
  4. Decision – Spring productions confirmed (by 8 November)

Questionnaire:

  1. Name of the play you want to pitch and author?
  2. Approx running time of play? Will you have an interval?
  3. Brief description of the plot of the play?
  4. Genre?
  5. Number of actors? Male/female split?
  6. Why do you want to direct this play? What do you plan to do with it? Why would actors want to be involved?
  7. What experience do you have of working with/managing groups of people? Include theatre/directing experience or from another area of your life.
  8. Are you available for all three of the available slots for Spring?
  9. Do you intend to work alongside an assistant director or producer? If so, do you have people in mind?
  10. Is there anything else you want to tell us?
  11. On occasion we are unable to attain performance rights for plays, so ask directors to consider a rights free alternative production as a back-up (if their first choice isn’t rights free)? Do you already have an alternative play in mind?
