Script Accelerator 2019

Script Accelerator is a yearly new play development programme. We spend four intensive weeks supporting emerging practitioners with our unique writing and progression initiative, culminating in a showcase. 

After the showcase many plays have found homes on our Park90 stage including: We're Staying Right Here by Henry DevasDistance by Alex McSweeneyA Pupil by Jesse BritonHappy to Help by Michael RossStorm in a Tea Cup by Hot Coals Theatre Ensemble and World Enough and Time by Sarah Sigal

Get your finger on the pulse! Our showcase includes an all-important feedback session, so join us and be part of the conversation. When it comes to seeing new writing in its early stages, the Script Accelerator showcase is the cutting edge event to book for. Click here to book.

Script Accelerator Mentee Application 2019

Each piece will be assigned a mentee with the view of sharing experience, knowledge and understanding of theatre making in order to open a pathway into theatre for the mentees. Each mentee will also be invited to various workshops ran by the team at Park Theatre and will learn some basic technical skills.

Mentees will be selected to support the teams with the rehearsal, development and delivery of their work. Mentees will be given the opportunity to assist and take part in the professional development process of a new piece of writing within a professional London theatre. For their time we can offer a contribution towards travel and expenses up to £250.

You do not need any skills or experience to take part other than a keen interest in making and delivering theatre in a professional environment to a high standard.

After all applications are reviewed a shortlist will be announced. We will then hold interview sessions before announcing successful applicants. We are looking for applicants from all backgrounds who will benefit from the experience and responsibilities offered through the programme.
