National Theatre Studio - Emerging Directors and New Writing
The Studio is the centre of research and development for the National Theatre. Since its foundation in 1984, the Studio has been an invaluable resource for a wide range of artists working throughout British theatre, providing an environment in which writers, actors and practitioners of all kinds can explore, experiment and devise new work free from the pressure of public performance. By offering artists the two most important resources available – namely time and space – the Studio is able to create an environment and ethos in which fearless exploration and experiment are encouraged. The Studio is not about finished product, but about the chance to take risks, test new material and hone ideas that may or may not one day become a new play, a classic text or a major production.
