– Up to four sessions with a dramaturg
– A rehearsal week supported by a director and performers
– A public reading at the Tron in May 2024
– Advice and support from the Tron’s team.
The successful applicant will be someone who shows real promise as a stylish and distinctive playwright and who pitches an idea the Tron Theatre are excited about and intrigued by.
