Sessions will be practical and will be led by two Directors from Leeds Playhouse – Associate Director Amy Leach and Agent for Change John R. Wilkinson.
The course is FREE and there will be a small stipend to cover travel expenses for all participants. BSL interpreters and access workers will be on hand to support up to ten participants.
This course is generously supported by the Regional Theatre Young Director Scheme (RTYDS).

The course will explore the basics of what a Theatre Director does, what their roles and responsibilities are, and lots of practical exploration of their role from prepping a play and the design process, to working with actors.
