The East by West UK/US Playwright Exchange

Website ATandMT An Tobar and Mull Theatre

The Isle of Mull's arts venue.

Co-sponsored by An Tobar and Mull Theatre, Citizens Theatre Glasgow, Ensemble Studio Theater New York and Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater with support from Playwrights’ Studio, Scotland and Arch 468.

The project seeks to explore the impact of place and geographically rooted stories on our culture and in particular how the stories of the Scottish diaspora may have influenced American narratives.

The selected playwrights will have some existing creative practice but do not previously need to have work professionally commissioned or produced.

Selected playwrights will receive:

A weekly stipend of £450 a week for 4 weeks to develop their work and practice within a once-in-a-lifetime cultural and creative experience.

Paid international travel and accommodation in Mull, Glasgow, New York and Cape Cod.

The opportunity to develop industry networks with key commissioners and co-producers in both Scotland and North America to support future career development and production opportunities.

A programme of cultural activity designed to enrich their practice as a writer.

Tickets to cultural experiences in each of our four key locations.
