Apply to be Literary Associate at the Orange Tree Theatre!

The incumbent of this role, Guy Jones, was with the OT for a decade, spanning the tenures of Paul Miller (as Literary Associate) and Tom Littler (in a broader role as Associate Director). He is now joining Shakespeare’s Globe to oversee their new work.

The next Literary Associate could come from many potential backgrounds. We are open to applications from theatre directors (although this is not a directing role), writers, dramaturgs, literary managers, producers, and those moving from allied professions including theatrical agents, journalists and academics.

We are looking for someone who values excellent plays; recognises the OT’s unsubsidised not-for-profit but commercially resilient business model; and enjoys our blend of classics, rediscoveries, contemporary revivals, new plays, family and community work.

The right candidate will be practical and hands-on: a team player keen to pitch into the day-today work of the OT; a negotiator keen to work with agents and coproducers; a nurturing presence for artists; and a shrewd evaluator of a wide variety of plays.

The Literary Associate will work closely with the artistic team to invest in and develop our OT New Artists programme, which includes a successful Writers’ Collective.

To start from summer 2024.
