We are absolutely thrilled to introduce you to our next 503Five….Annie Jenkins, Benedict Lombe, Joel Tan, Jon Berry and Zak Mahinfar

“We are so thrilled be adding these five exciting new talents to an incredible list of writers whose careers started as part of our 503Five. Annie, Benedict, Joel, Jon and Zak were the standout applicants – demonstrating strength in their writing, their unique voices and brilliant ideas for the plays they’ve been burning to write. We couldn’t be happier to have them join so soon after two sell-out productions from last year’s 503Five writers Ross Willis (Wolfie) and Yasmin Joseph (J’Ouvert). We can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.”  Lisa Spirling, Artistic Director

The 503Five alumni are Beth Steel, Lou Ramsden, Nimer Rashed, Rex Obano, Richard Marsh (2011-12); Brad Birch, Charlene James, Chris Urch, Gemma Langford, Jon Brittain (2013-14); Brian Mullin, Chloe Todd Fordham, Ella Greenhill, Neasa O’Callaghan, Vinay Patel (2015-16); Aisha Zia, Chris Hogg, Mahad Ali, Ross Willis, Yasmin Joseph (2017-18)
