Opportunity for up-and-coming Director

Application Closing Date: 23 May 2022

The Royal Theatrical Support Trust is delighted to be running its RTST Sir Peter Hall Director Award in 2022 with Nottingham Playhouse.

The annual RTST Sir Peter Hall Director Award is designed to provide an up-and-coming director with a first-time, career-breakthrough opportunity to originate and direct, as sole director, a fully-funded production as part of a main season of plays at a mid-scale British regional theatre and to provide grant support to that theatre to stage that production, which might, depending on the circumstances, tour to other venues.

The name of the Award honours the memory of the RTST’s co-founder Sir Peter Hall.

This year, the winner of the Award will win the opportunity to originate and direct a play in the main season of plays to be staged at Nottingham Playhouse in Autumn 2023. The RTST Sir Peter Hall Director Award 2022 will be awarded to an up-and-coming director for demonstration of excellence and high promise in directing skills and appreciation of how to create theatre that appeals to audiences in Nottingham and potentially on a brief UK tour. The winner will emerge from a rigorous competitive process organised by the RTST in conjunction with Nottingham Playhouse. We are particularly keen to see candidates from a diversity of backgrounds, interests and needs.

The closing date for entries is Monday 23 May 2022 at 6.00pm.
