Theatre Director/ Devisor

We are looking for an experienced and motivated theatre director to collaborate with our National Ensemble 2018 working towards a small scale tour in July 2018.

The National Ensemble is a group of 19 exceptional young theatre makers from across Scotland aged 16 – 25.  The group work together throughout the year on monthly development weekends and then gather in the summer for an intensive rehearsal period to create an innovative piece of theatre in collaboration with a theatre director and creative team.

This year’s theme will focus on mental wellbeing and mental health.  We are seeking applications from professional theatre directors who relish the opportunity to collaborate with and challenge talented young artists to create a piece of innovative and world class theatre.  The Director will be supported by a creative team including a dramaturg and other specialists relevant to the desired style of the piece.
