Across five years, MTC will
have writer-in-residence opportunities for up to 15 writers who have a
background in playwriting and would benefit from specific experience of,
and writing for, a major company’s mainstage.
These writers will be resident at MTC for
up to three years, receiving an annual stipend, office resources,
company support, regular meetings with the Artistic team and integration
with all aspects of MTC’s operations including the programming and
production decision-making processes. In the first year of residencies
the writers will not be obliged to write a full play, unless they wish
to do so.
Applications are now open for the 2019 intake of resident writers.
Three new participants will be selected for the program, taking up
residency with MTC in August for an initial 12 month period, with the
possibility of extending into a second and third year.
STAGE writer-in-residence placements are opportunities for writers who
have a background in playwriting, demonstrate skill and ambition, and
would benefit from specific experience of writing for a major theatre
