Update: Applications for the COMPASS strands are now closed for 2021.
We are delighted to announce that applications are now open for COMPASS, Rough Magic’s new artist development programme.
Since 2001 Rough Magic has been a pioneer of artist development in Irish theatre, through the SEEDS programme. SEEDS has been Ireland’s most comprehensive development programme over nineteen years; and now COMPASS is here to take the original concept into the next decade.
The company will now accept applications for the following COMPASS strands:

A part-time Literary Manager will be appointed by the company to assist in forging and maintaining relationships with playwrights across the spectrum of the COMPASS programme. The closing date for applications is 15th February 2021.
3 emerging/early-career artists across the disciplines of directing and design (sound, lighting, av, set and costume) will be placed with the company annually for a 12-month programme. The closing date for applications is 19th February 2021.
