New Writers Programme 2021
The VAULT New Writers Programme offers a total introduction to writing for stage.
The course starts on Saturday 22nd May and culminates in a professionally produced showcase performance on Sunday 11th July.
Who’s It For?
Prospective writers over the age of 18, who have an interest in writing for the stage but who have never had a full-length play staged before or received any professional training in writing for the stage.
What Does It Involve?
Six selected participants will receive mentoring and support to draft a 60 minute piece for the stage. The programme is made up of weekly 3-hour sessions, which take place every Saturday afternoon, 2pm-5pm. Workshops involve practical instruction, group discussion, and guest speakers. Participants will also be encouraged to attend group trips to see shows, including streamed performances and if possible, live theatre.
A 10 minute extract of the piece developed as part of the New Writers Programme will be performed at a showcase evening on Sunday 11th July to an audience made up of invited industry and the public. The pieces will be produced by VAULT Festival, performed by professional actors, and directed by participants on the New Directors Programme that runs alongside the New Writers Programme.
