The Genesis Future Directors Award enables us to identify, support and nurture a director to explore their craft and stage a production in the Clare Theatre. The Award is aimed at emerging directors who have demonstrated a talent for, and commitment to, directing but have had limited opportunity to make work.

The recipient of the Award will have the opportunity to work for four weeks on a play of their choice. The director can work with up to five actors and a full creative team. The production is part of the Young Vic's programme and is fully supported by the Young Vic's creative, administrative and production teams. The project concludes with 12 performances to a paying audience in the Clare Theatre. There are two Awards per year and these opportunities will be advertised through the Genesis Directors Network.
