Playwriting Residentials -Down Stage Write

Down Stage Write are thrilled to be able to offer playwrights based in Devon and Cornwall the chance to apply for one of three fully funded writing residencies in partnership with the Charles Causley Trust.

These residencies will give you the opportunity to spend 3 days at Charles Causley’s house, Cyprus Well, in Launceston. You can use this time, away from distractions, to focus on your writing; finishing that first draft, whipping that final draft in to shape, even starting a brand-new piece from scratch.


The residencies will run in September 2019, specific dates are detailed below.

Residency 1 – Wednesday 18th, Thursday 19th, Friday 20th

Residency 2 – Monday 23rd, Tuesday 24th, Wednesday 25th

Residency 3 – Thursday 26th, Friday 27th, Saturday 28th

During your three days there will be a chance for dramaturgical support from Down Stage Write, including a 121 meeting/feedback session at Cyprus Well.


Deadline: July 14th 2019
