Directors' Pool

The Almeida Theatre’s Directors' Pool offers directors in the early stages of their career the opportunity to work closely with the theatre in all aspects of the artistic programme, to gain experience through access to the resources provided by the Almeida, and to widen their artistic network. For each of our productions, the director will select a Resident Director from the pool who will support the production process from first rehearsals to public performance. Alongside the opportunity to assist, the pool will take part in script readings and workshops led by Almeida creatives, and lead projects for Almeida Participation during their residency.

The director scheme is supported by The Eranda Rothschild Foundation.
