Squad grad and board member Sarah Gonnet has been selected as to take part in the Regional Theatre Young Director Scheme, on a three month placement with Greyscale Theatre Company.

The paid placement allows theatre companies to host a new director at the very start of their professional directing career. Sarah will spend three months learning about the role and skills of a theatre director.

Sarah says, “The RTYDS three-month placement will give me the opportunity to learn what I need to know to make the leap to directing theatre professionally. Being carefully placed with Greyscale for the duration of the placement means that all of my needs as a disabled artist will be met – something I wouldn’t be able to find elsewhere in the industry. Through the placement I will be able to develop my directing skills under a very experienced director and develop my own work as well as the projects I will be assisting on.”
