VAULT Festival New Writers Showcase

Presented by VAULT Festival

Throughout the eight weeks of VAULT Festival 2019, six talented new writers have been learning the craft of playwriting in an intensive practical writing course. This special industry showcase features extracts from original work developed during the programme, performed by professional actors and guest-directed by VAULT Festival alumni.

The VAULT New Writers Programme was created in 2017 to offer a total introduction to writing for the stage in a non-patronising and inclusive way. This year, we received 100s of applications from would-be playwrights from a range of backgrounds, all with little to no experience of playwriting. After a careful selection process, six outstanding applicants were selected to take part in the course:

Sahra Ali, Ramsey Hassan, Elisabeth Lewerenz, Matt Neubauer, Jenny Novitzky and Esohe Uwadiae.

This showcase performance is the first time these pieces have been performed on the stage.

Running order to be confirmed.

The VAULT Festival 2019 New Writers Programme was developed by playwright and screenwriter Camilla Whitehill (Where Do Little Birds Go?, Mr Incredible, Freeman) in partnership with Gillian Greer, Head of Theatre for VAULT Festival 2019, and is proudly supported by leading theatre publishers and performing rights agents Nick Hern Books.
