Better BE Quick



The Old Vic 12 represents a unique opportunity for 12 developing artists who are looking to make the next step in their careers. The scheme, run by the Old Vic, will offer them opportunities to expand networks, receive professional mentoring and the participants will also receive a grant to create and develop three brand new plays.

The Old Vic 12 will consist of:
3 Directors
3 Producers
3 Playwrights
1 Designer
1 Movement Director
1 Composer

The initiative’s FAQ sheet states, ‘We’re not looking for polished artists; we’re looking for individuals who have the desire to create daring work and will readily embrace new challenges.’

Certain criteria must be met for whichever role you’d like to apply for. For example, for writers, the FAQ stresses, ‘Playwrights will be ready for their first commission, having had at least one play produced or having participated in a number of stage readings.’

The closing date for applications is Tuesday, 30 August, 2016 and you can find out more, including how to apply, at the Old Vic’s official site.
