Salisbury Playhouse and The JMK Trust are offering directors a FREE two-day residency exploring sound and music in theatre on Tuesday 20 and Wednesday 21 September. It will be led by award-winning theatre and television composer and sound designer Richard Hammarton.

The sessions will give the participants an insight into collaborating with both sound designers and composers and an understanding of the creative process.

Richard Hammarton has worked extensively in the UK and internationally including at The Royal Court, the Young Vic, The Old Vic, The Globe and Salisbury Playhouse as well as for the Ivor Novello winning TV series Ripper Street.

Each year it engages with over 200 young and emerging directors around the UK through its regional programme and the annual James Menzies-Kitchin Young Director’s Award (The JMK Award). The JMK Award is recognised as a vital springboard for young directors of outstanding potential at an early stage in their careers. For more information please visit
