Royal Court Theatre (London, United Kingdom): International Playwrights Group

Since 1989 the Royal Court Theatre has collaborated with emerging playwrights from all parts of the world, working in over 70 countries and in more than 40 languages. The International Playwrights Group (formerly the International Residency) is part of this programme that offers the opportunity for international playwrights to spend time at the Royal Court Theatre in London, developing a new play. It also offers international theatre artists a forum to meet and work with leading British writers, directors and performers.

In summer 2014, five international playwrights will be invited to London to take part in a focussed, residential writers group, working with members of the Royal Court Theatre artistic team from 2 to 19 July 2014 (inclusive).

Playwrights will be expected to write in their mother tongue and this work will be translated by the Royal Court. However, participants will need to have a good working knowledge of English as all meetings and group sessions will be conducted in English.

Travel and Accommodation
International travel, subsistence and accommodation will be provided by the Royal Court Theatre. Accommodation is self-catering, within walking distance or a short bus ride from the theatre. The Royal Court Theatre will also reimburse any UK entry visas costs.

Deadline for applications: 14 March 2014.
