Clubbed Thumb Directing Fellowship
In partnership with Playwrights Horizons Theater School, The Clubbed Thumb Directing Fellowship is a five month new play directing intensive, under the mentorship of alumni artists Anne Kauffman and Ken Rus Schmoll.
We are pleased to invite early-career directors to apply for the 2017/2018 Fellowship.
Fellows will work on new plays by Clubbed Thumb playwrights over the course of a semester with Playwrights Horizons Theater School student performers. Then, they will build on this work with workshop productions of the same plays with professional actors.
Important dates include a three-day retreat in late August; student rehearsals between September and November, 2017; and a focused rehearsal process in January, 2018.
To apply, complete the form below. Applications are due by March 15, 2017.
This initiative is made possible by the generous support of:
piece by piece productions, Jody Falco & Jeffrey Steinman and The Playwrights Horizons Theater School.
