The Old Vic 12 is an extraordinary opportunity for 12 developing artists looking to make the next step in their careers (including three playwrights). The scheme will offer them opportunities to expand networks, receive first class mentoring and benefit from a prestigious association with The Old Vic through an attachment to this iconic building. The selected 12 will also receive a grant to create and develop three brand new plays.
What to submit/How to apply: Applications can be submitted via an online form on Hiive. (Note: you must create a profile to apply.) The form asks writers to pitch a play project, discuss their intended audience, and talk about their previous experience.
Writer applicants are also required to supply a 2-3 page writing sample.
