JMK Cardiff – Sherman Theatre

With the support of The Carne Trust, we run a Directors Group in partnership with the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff, for new and emerging directors across Wales.

Our JMK group in Cardiff is unique to our programme, in that it works very intensively with a small group of directors. As such, directors apply annually to join and, in partnership with the Sherman, we select the directors who would most benefit from the support at this stage of their careers.

The selected directors benefit from numerous free skills workshops, networking events and access to mentoring and support throughout the year, with opportunities to work in both Welsh and English. They are partnered up with a writer from the Sherman's New Welsh Playwrights Programme to develop and showcase a new piece of work. Members of the Directors' Group are also eligible to apply for Assistant Director positions.

This group is run by our JMK Director Practitioner, Adele Thomas. Adele also runs our Directors' Group in Bristol - an open group for directors based in this area, hosted with Bristol Old Vic and Tobacco Factory Theatres.

Our 2018 JMK & Sherman Directors' Group members were:
