Write the Girl is a day of discussion about theatre-making for and with young women run by Lady Eleanor Holles and Hampton High Schools and will include the launch of a new commissioning process.
Attendees will then be eligible to apply for a fully funded commission for Lady Eleanor Holles School and Hampton High School in 2019: full details will be shared on the day.
Details about the day:
Playwrights, practitioners and theatre makers are warmly invited to attend a day of discussion, workshops and professional development in the Jane Ross Theatre, LEH School, on 5th December 2018. The Write the Girl Project is motivated by the frustration felt by teachers and students in their search for meaningful stories, suitable for large casts, that stretch, challenge and engage a generation of young women dissatisfied by a male-dominated canon. Sessions will be run by fantastic directors including Eleanor Rhode (Boudica, The Globe), with award-winning television Producer Clelia Mountford (Merman Productions) and representatives from Nick Hern Books also attending. Most importantly, there will also be opportunities to work with a range of teenagers and their teachers.
Date: 5 December, 10.30am – 4.30pm (approx timings)
How to apply: if you would like to attend the day, please email a brief CV and cover letter explaining your interest in the event to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please attach this as one document of no more than two sides of A4 in total.
All questions should be directed to this email address: please do not contact either school directly. Unfortunately, places are limited and priority will be given to those with the clearest sense of an affinity for the ethos of the project. You will be contacted by Tuesday 20th November with confirmation of your place along with the final details for the day.
Deadline: 16 November 2018 at 3pm
