Are you a budding theatre maker or novice in the field looking for the opportunity to develop your skills and gain experience in developing and delivering a professional theatre production?
Are you a producer/producing company? Or a writer who knows a producer and production team who you would like to work with? Do you have a new script which would benefit from space for research, development and rehearsal, feedback from industry professionals and the chance to present your work in aprofessional London theatre in front of a live audience?
If so – keep reading! The Script Accelerator Programme could be the perfect fit!
SCRIPT ACCELERATOR 2016
Script Accelerator is a yearly programme designed to support emerging practitioners.
Each year producers, or theatre companies, are invited to pitch a particular play they would like to develop – and six are selected into the programme.
Each producer is responsible for selecting their actors and director and, over four weeks, is granted slots in a number of spaces within the building in order to develop their work. The process culminates with a 20 minute showing of each piece to an audience in Park200, our larger auditorium.
Pieces are selected on the merit of the script and, vitally, on future life potential. A number have previously gone on to our Park90 stage.
Script Accelerator is led by Creative Director Melli Bond with the opportunity for feedback from Artistic Director Jez Bond. Each producer will be appointed a mentee to assist their team.
