Writer Lab Opportunity – Tron Theatre

Writer Lab, in partnership with Playwrights’ Studio, Scotland, is a new weeklong writer residency opportunity, giving an early career professional playwright space to experiment with a new idea for a text in a rehearsal room. The Writer Lab will enable a writer to work with collaborators to approach a new idea and explore its potential by providing space, support, provocation and a £3,500 budget.

A successful Writer Lab applicant receives:

– a funded opportunity to develop a new idea and explore its potential

– support to plan their residency and work creatively with collaborators, within a mutually agreed budget of up to £3,500

– a five-day residency in the Tron Theatre’s Changing House

Our mission with the Writer Lab is to provide an early career writer with support and space that enables a writer time and space to play with and explore an idea or project.
