Freelance Writer/Director – Royal Shakespeare Company

Are you a creative writer and director? Can you help us to deliver engaging performances?

As part of our work to refurbish the RSC’s Costume Workshop, The National Heritage Lottery Fund has supported us to deliver a programme of outreach work called THREADS.

Our THREADS engagement work will continue over the Summer holidays with the RSC’s Creative Placemaking and Public Programmes team delivering a programme of free outdoor events in our spaces that will bring the vibrant history of costume making at the RSC, and in Stratford-upon-Avon, to life.

The team are looking to engage a Freelance Writer/Director as part of this exciting programme of work. In this role you will create and direct two engaging, high-energy performances that will showcase our costume making heritage and techniques to a broad audience. These performances will be 20-30 minutes long and should be curated to make them as inclusive and accessible as possible.

To deliver this project you will have access to resources to develop your knowledge of costume making, with a research period included in the delivery schedule.

To apply, please submit up to two sides of A4 detailing:

  • What you find creatively exciting about this brief
  • An initial concept or inspiration that you’d like to explore
  • A suggested title or tagline
  • How you would make the performances attractive and accessible
  • Your availability for the dates included in the brief

Applications, along with your CV, should be submitted to by Friday 21 May.

The delivery fee for this project will be £2100, to include researching and writing the performances and rehearsal and performance attendance (up to 6 full days).
