Head Writer, Out of Joint
Deadline: Mon 19 Oct 2020
Out of Joint tour to theatres around the country, bringing communities together with stories that unite us around our basic humanity. We are seeking a Head Writer for our new project ‘Stockroom’, which will be a writers room dedicated to creating the best in new work for the midscale.

The Head Writer will work with the Artistic Director and Executive Producer to manage the Stockroom staff and develop projects both for Out of Joint and with partner theatres on commission.

The Head Writer should have some creative experience and demonstrate that they can follow through with projects from ideas stage to production. You might be a writer or you might have been a dramaturg or a literary agent or a director. We’re open to applications from anyone who feels they have what it takes to lead a small team and create great work for the midscale.

Stockroom is at the heart of the new Out of Joint business plan. Stockroom will be a diverse collection of artists and creatives from various disciplines who will work together in a writers room setting with a clear and exact brief to group-create shows for the midscale, in partnership with stakeholders and audience focus groups.

The aim over the next three years is not only to create unique Out of Joint commissions but to be a resource to be commissioned by, or work to a brief set by, our partner theatres.

To apply, please visit our website

Deadline: 10am on Monday 19th October 2020
