Plays Without Décor
We are always on the look out for exciting new ways to support artists both on our stage and off. Our Plays without Décor programme is generously supported by the Noël Coward Foundation (www.noelcoward.org).

Are you a young or emerging director with an exciting idea you’ve been wanting to develop? We understand how difficult and expensive it can be to get a new project past the planning stages so, as part of our Heritage and Artistic Engagement programme, we’re offering four emerging directors the chance to use our studio free of charge for a week in order to workshop or develop a new idea. You might decide to use your time to produce a reading, workshop or semi-staged performance and invite industry professionals or sell tickets to the public.

To apply please fill in this application form and send it to: a.cox@wiltons.org.uk by Friday 3rd April 2020.
