The Old Vic 12 is an extraordinary opportunity for 12 developing artists looking to make the next step in their careers. The scheme will offer them opportunities to expand networks, receive first class mentoring and benefit from a prestigious association with The Old Vic through an attachment to this iconic building. The selected 12 will also receive a grant to create and develop three brand new plays.

The Old Vic is looking for three directors, three playwrights, three producers and three exciting collaborators from any discipline: designers, composers, DJs, lighting designers, movement directors, illusionists and everything in-between; if you’re interested in collaboration and new plays, they want to hear from you.
