JMK Directors


Salisbury Playhouse / JMK Trust Emerging Directors Programme

Salisbury Playhouse, Nuffield Southampton Theatres and the JMK Trust are inviting local directors and theatre-makers interested in directing theatre to join their free ongoing talent development scheme, based at the two theatres. The aim is to:

  • Create a hub for directors interested in making theatre.
  • Provide access to exclusive workshop, training and development opportunities for emerging directors and makers.
  • Create a chance for directors and makers to meet regularly, to network and to share ideas both regionally and nationally.
  • The opportunity to apply for a Leverhulme Arts Scholarship, securing the chance to work as an assistant director on a professional production.

Jo Newman will head up the scheme at the Salisbury Playhouse, working with the Nuffield Theatre and JMK's Regional Coordinators Sam Potter and Justin Audibert to create a series of workshops, gatherings and events for theatre directors in the region throughout the year.

To join the group please email Jo.Newman@salisburyplayhouse.com




We will email with more information about each of these events and how to sign up closer to the time, this is just an overview so you can have the dates in your diary.
