Pentabus are looking for an emerging theatre artist to become their third Clive and Sylvia Richards Charity Writer in Residence.
The Bursary supports a professional playwright in the early stage of their career, giving the recipient the opportunity to spend up to a year at their base in Bromfield, which is just outside Ludlow in South Shropshire. During their time with Pentabus, the recipient will write at least one new full length play or piece of theatre.
The £10,000 Bursary is generously supported for a third year by the Clive and Sylvia Richards Charity. It is intended to cover the recipient’s living costs while they are resident at Pentabus for at least six months of their year-long bursary.
The Writer in Residence will be the working artist at the core of the company, with their own dedicated studio at Pentabus HQ. They will write at least one full length play while they are there, supported dramaturgically by the Artistic Director.
They will take part in all day to day activity from Artistic Planning meetings to meeting rural communities and audiences. They will work with the Audiences and engagement Manager to plan and deliver their Young Company and Young Writers’ workshops.
