Starter Opportunity: Political Comedy Writer

Filter News

Deadline: Tuesday, August 20, 2019

A residency place for a writer that identifies as a woman, female, femme or non-binary to explore or further develop an idea for a piece of political comedy for the stage.

National Theatre of Scotland recognise that one of the best ways an artist can learn and develop their practice, skills and networks is through the active process of making work. And nothing beats dedicated budget, time, space and support in fostering the development of a new idea.

Starter is an initiative designed to seed ideas and develop an artists' practice through the offer of eight residencies that come with a budget (£2500), in kind space and equipment, access to technical advice and expertise, and producing and dramaturgical support.

In 2019, six of the eight residencies will be targeted towards artists with specific practice, skills or experience, with two residency places remaining totally open. Starter residencies are not commissions or production opportunities and all rights to the work generated will remain with the artists and their collaborators.

This residency place is for a writer that identifies as a woman, female, femme or non-binary to explore or further develop an idea for a piece of political comedy for the stage.

Application Deadline: Monday 19 August 2019 at 5pm

Residency should be undertaken: October - December 2019 - dates to be mutually agreed

Panel - Stellar Quines and Rosie Kellagher (Dramaturg - National Theatre of Scotland).
