Opportunities & calls for submissions

For new projects exploring class and ‘post-truth’

In spring 2018, Camden People’s Theatre stages two short seasons of work exploring working-class experience, identity and representation (Common People, April 16 – 28); and the ‘post-truth’ landscape (All Is True, June 4 – 9). At each event, alongside the main programme of work, we will showcase new works-in-development addressing these themes. We are now seeking proposals for new projects to take part in these ‘scratch’ platforms, and can offer seed commissions of £500 to successful applicants.

How to apply

If you would like to submit an application, please read the information sheet and then complete the online application form.  We are unable to accept CVs, portfolios, scripts or anything other than our formatted application form.  Deadline for submissions is Mon 26 February.

Seed Commission call-out for artists from BAME backgrounds

With the support of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Camden People’s Theatre offers six seed commissions annually to artists from BAME backgrounds, to support the development of innovative new theatre projects. Two of these will be offered in Spring 2018: successful candidates will receive £750, one week’s rehearsal space, and the opportunity to present a ‘scratch’ performance (up to 25 minutes long) as part of our artistic programme. These commissions are being offered to artists of colour in recognition of the fact these artists are currently underrepresented in contemporary theatre.
