To apply, candidates must write between one and two pages about themselves on A4 paper telling the programme what you're doing, what you'd like to do in the future as well as what you could bring to the programme and what you expect to gain from it.

Candidates should also include the title and a 100-word summary of a play they would like to direct, running no longer than 50 minutes with no more than two actors.

Candidates must also include their date of birth and contact details.
