Calling all aspiring critics! If you love watching theatre performances and putting your thoughts about them down in writing, then we’d like to invite you to become a Citizen Reviewer.
Citizens’ Reviews is a yearly programme that gives up-and-coming theatre critics the opportunity to hone their craft, and join a growing community of fellow reviewers. Now approaching its sixth cycle, the 2019 edition will take place from 1 January to 31 December 2019.
This programme encourages independent learning. Reviewers will be provided with tickets to attend local theatre performances of their choice, after which they will submit a review. The piece will then be edited and published on the Centre’s website. Please note that we will only be accepting reviewers who write in English.
As Citizens’ Reviews is not designed as a course, there will be no regular classes on critical writing. However, reviewers will be invited to attend a week-long training programme, with details to be announced. Reviewers will also have the opportunity to attend monthly meet-ups with the editor and fellow reviewers.
