New! JMK Directors’ Group with the New Vic, Stoke

We are delighted to collaborate with the New Vic Stoke to deliver free workshops and opportunities for directors over the coming months, as part of our National Programme of directors' groups.

The first workshop will be on Saturday 9th November, 2pm-6pm, at the New Vic. It will be led by Piers Black, the JMK Director Practitioner for this area. As well as providing an excellent opportunity to learn from Piers and pick up some new directing skills and ideas, it'll also be a chance to hear a bit more about JMK and have your say about what workshop topics would be useful for us to cover over the next few months.

On Tuesday 12th November, 2-6pm, there will be the opportunity to observe the technical rehearsal of the New Vic's Christmas show, The Prince and the Pauper.

If you'd like to attend either of these sessions, please email

The following events will also be happening over the next few months, so be sure to put them in your diary now!
