How to Enter a Show

NSDF exists to make things. 

We welcome all new ideas of how to work, and believe in the capacity and necessity of supporting the innovation of young people. 

We know the pandemic creates immense challenges for young people who wish to make new work in the next few months. But we know young artists will come up with brilliant ideas to make new things in safe ways, using new technology or old. 

Therefore although at the moment we cannot- as we have for decades- come to you and see your show in person, we want to hear from you. 

Although we cannot see your work live we will find ways to experience it, with the view to selecting shows for NSDF. 

“NSDF has been an undeniably huge springboard in our development. The contacts we made have been invaluable to us, and we became part of a whole new circle of friends that are passionate about supporting one another and seeing each other grow. The workshops, performances, discussions and over all experience is so forward thinking and inspiring. NSDF is really one of the most exciting places to be for young theatre makers”
Grace Gallagher, Artistic Director of Ugly Bucket
