The Inspire Programme is an opportunity for playwrights with new ideas, talent and energy to develop their craft under the mentorship of award-winning playwright Roy Williams. The Inspire playwrights will work with Roy Williams for one year to develop and complete a full length play. Beginning in November 2018, the playwrights will attend monthly group sessions with Roy and visiting practitioners, as well as one-on-one meetings. They will also be given the opportunity to submit drafts for feedback and to hold a reading of their work with actors at Hampstead Theatre. In autumn 2019, all drafts will be considered for presentation in our Downstairs studio, and the playwrights will meet with the Executive team to discuss their work.
The programme is completely free. They will also offer a bursary of £200 towards travel throughout the year.
Midnight on Monday 3 September 2018.
No experience is necessary.
Anyone aged between 18 and 25 inclusive on 1 November 2018 is eligible to apply.
