After a joyous pilot run of the Playwright's Professional Development Residency, we are thrilled to now invite applications for the next edition commencing May 2024!

This 2-year residency programme is for up to 4 early-career playwrights who are serious about focusing on their creative development, and who could benefit from the rigour and challenge of this residency. These writers should also see themselves thriving in a writer's group dynamic.

Co-leads Joel Tan and Jean Tay will design and run the studio programme, which aims to:

- Provide a space for residents to rigorously interrogate and develop their practice

- Provide numerous opportunities to write and build up a small portfolio of residency-specific work

- Provide multiple public presentation opportunities

- Directly connect the residents with theatre professionals through workshops, talks, and immersion opportunities
