Calling all beginner directors

Come learn the craft in KDC’s Full Stack this Summer

If you’ve wanted to try your hand at directing, KDC is on the look out for up to 5 new directors to help bring our Full Stack summer show to life. You can have limited or even no prior experience – this is a chance to practice with a friendly, supportive group on shorter (around 10-15 minutes) new writing pieces. Want to find out more? Contact by 24 March.

New writing call-out, Full Stack is back!

Full Stack competition

The Full Stack project is KDC Theatre’s new writing competition and anthology show.

Each year we set a new theme and brief, and invite writers to submit new short plays. The winning scripts will make up our Full Stack summer show; an anthology production of 6-8 short plays, staged at one of the London venues KDC Theatre work with.

The summer show takes place in June/July and runs for 5 nights.

And our new brief and the submission window is now open! Please read the brief carefully and get writing – we will announce winners after the submission window closes.

Spring season auditions

The holiday period isn’t just an exciting time because of mince pies and fireworks, but also because it’s the start to the auditions of KDC Theatre’s spring season!

The details

This spring season we will be staging Slither by Carson Kreitzer, directed by Sarah Beebe, and The Bus by Stanislav Stratiev, directed by Stephen Reimer. If you were at our Christmas Quiz, you were one of the lucky ones to get a very brief sneak peak but fear not – the rest of you now get access to the audition notices too!
