The purpose of the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award is to, in particular, help the development of emerging practitioners in the field of experimental theatre and, in general, encourage the new generation of creative artists.
The award is for a company or individual to create either a show to be performed in The Pit , Barbican, or a site-responsive, non-traditional show to take place in East London or in the City of London. The winning show, either in The Pit or, if site-responsive, elsewhere, will be part of the Barbican Theatre season.
Shortlisted applicants for the 2017 award have now been contacted. The Trustees regret that they cannot enter into correspondence or discussion over unsuccessful applications.
Submissions for the award are currently closed, please check this webpage in Autumn for information regarding the 2018 award.
