New – JMK Nottingham

We're delighted to announce a new addition to our National Programme partner venues - Nottingham Playhouse, where our JMK workshops will be delivered in partnership with their Amplify programme.

Our JMK programme with Amplify is free, and open to emerging and established directors who either live in or come from the East Midlands.

The programme is curated by JMK Director Practitioner Martin Berry, who also co-ordinates our programme at the Royal & Derngate and Birmingham Rep to encourage new collaborations across the Midlands.

Current Opportunities:

The first session will take place on the 22nd November 2019, when writer and director Luke Barnes will join us to run a session on the writer – director relationship and the process of making a new play.

Luke Barnes is an award-winning northern playwright from Formby, Liverpool. Avid Liverpool fan, average cook and below average musician, his writing concentrates on trying to make work that is, at the same time, a good night out and packed full of big ideas that affect our everyday lives. Recent plays include Ten Storey Love Song, All We Ever Wanted was Everything, No One Will Tell Me How To Start A Revolution, Men In Blue, Fable, and The Jumper Factory.
