Earlier this year, you may have seen our New Work Open Call. This year we are doing things a little differently. After listening to your feedback we put out a call out for artists to tell us what support they want to receive from the Lyric this year!
Boy did you tell us, we had a record breaking 188 applications for support from our Literary Department and are excited that we are going to be able to support 100+ projects this year including:
- 80+ projects will receive dramaturgical/development/mentorship support
- 13 project received seed commissions
- 4 artists will take part in our ‘New Playwrights Programme’
You can also click here to learn more about Iseult Deane, Niamh Finlay, Rod McCance, Cameron Tharma – our 2022 New Playwrights Programme artists.
We tried to contact Rebecca Mairs, Literary Manager for comment but she was buried at the bottom of a pile of amazing scripts and work. The team are working on extracting her now.
Make sure you stay tuned throughout the year to hear more about these incredible projects. #NewWork
