We are pleased to announce Fay Lomas as the winner of the inaugural Peter Hall Emerging Artist Fellowship.
Established to commemorate the exceptional legacy of our founding Artistic Director, the Peter Hall Emerging Artist Fellowship (PHEAF) is an expression of the Rose's commitment to being both a distinctive producing house and a developer of theatre talent.
As the chosen Fellow, Lomas will work with a number of theatre practitioners through the year-long residency. She will be mentored by members of our Executive Team and will receive a bursary of £10,000 over the period. The residency will conclude with the talented emerging director staging a production in the Rose Studio.
Sir Peter Hall (1930-2017) was a pioneering and influential director and producer. He had a keen eye for developing talent in all areas of the theatre and was endlessly generous and supportive to emerging artists forging their own careers.
Our exciting new initiative will enable promising emerging theatre artists to be supported in their professional development through a residency at the Rose, where they will receive mentoring from world-class professionals and ultimately stage and direct their own production in the Rose Studio.
The Peter Hall Emerging Artist Fellowship is generously supported by the Rolex Institute and Kingston University.
