Announcing the Inaugural NMDC Writer’s Lab

It’s MUSICAL THEATRE time! Thrilled to announce I’ve been selected as one of 8 artists for the New Musical Development Collective’s inaugural Musical Theatre Writer’s Lab!  (NMDC!)

Musical Theatre Lab: Zara McFarlane, Shireen Mula, David Austin Grey, Amber Hsu, Firdos Ali, Stu Barter, Nikki Burnhope. *not pictured: Joe Von Malachowski :-(

With a year-long residency model, NMDC is dedicated to creating, nurturing and fostering artists who identify as playwrights, songwriters, lyricists and composers; artists who will be given a space to work with no rules but proven principles that can be acknowledged and challenged in pushing the form beyond its current boundaries.

Over the next year I will be developing a new musical theatre piece with composer and theatre maker Stu Barter. So far we’ve been delighting in strange discussions around teeth, devils, and the Internet :0)

I’m also super excited that Theatre Royal Stratford East is NMDC’s first host organisation. It’s a gorgeous theatre and I can’t wait to hunker down in its halls.

Check out more at the NMDC site and have a peek at us here in the Stage :-0:
