Rachel Twigg (Senior New Work Manager) and Stewart Pringle (Dramaturg) of the New Work Department at the National Theatre will discuss the work of the Department and projects and initiatives that support the work of emerging writers and directors.  

Rachel will lead on talking about directing opportunities, such as staff directing (assistant directing) the directors’ course and the resident director role.

Stewart will discuss the various activities surrounding writer and script development which the New Work Department accommodates, including our Attachment and Writer in Residence programmes, our process for assessing unsolicited scripts, as well as giving an introduction for writers on how best to engage with the NT.


Pay What You Decide.

You need to book yourself a place (either online or by calling box office) and then at the end of the session you will have the opportunity to make a donation of what you decide you want to, or can afford to pay. There is no obligation to pay anything.

We recommend booking early as capacities are limited.
