THE NORWICH PLAYERS THEATRE COMPANY COMMITTEE INVITES APPLICATIONS TO DIRECT FOR THE 2025 SEASON.

Please reply with your suggestion(s) to tony.fullwood@maddermarket.org by 9th February 2024

The NPTC committee invites anyone interested in directing a play for our 2025 season to submit their suggested titles.

The Maddermarket Articles say we will:

‘provide for the production of the plays of Shakespeare, representative plays of other English classical dramatists, meritorious plays of other English dramatists or authors including modern plays, and translations of representative plays of foreign dramatists, ancient or modern.’

This should give you plenty of scope in making your choice(s).

Whilst we cannot guarantee we will be able to accept your offer, we are keen to cast the net as wide as we can.

Please give us the following details :

A brief resumé of your directing experience, especially in recent years

The one or two play(s) you propose directing and their publisher(s)

Why you feel it/they would suit the Maddermarket and whether intended for the main stage or the studio

Why you want to direct it/them

Brief descriptions of each play’s casting, set and technical requirements – as you see them

Tell us if there is a particular performance slot you prefer or any which are not possible. The draft 2025 schedule is as follows :

Late January/early February. Studio show.

25-29th March. Mainstage show produced in association with UEA.
