The mentorship programme is part-time and runs from June 2020 – January 2021.
Practical sessions, which include play readings, workshops and rehearsals, are combined with one-to-one support from programme mentors (online or in person).
All practical sessions take place online or – when possible – at the Rose Lipman Building in east London unless otherwise specified.
The programme culminates in a showcase in January 2021* for the general public and invited industry, including theatre producers, directors and publishers.
