TS Eliot Commissions R&D - Jess'n'JoeForever by Zoe Cooper

TS Eliot Commissions

TS Eliot Commissions began a two-year search to find the very best emerging British and American playwrights with the long-term goal of commissioning new work for a self-contained OVNV season.

In 2013 we commissioned plays that explored topics such as dystopian future governments, the big bang theory and monogamy in the gay community. We look for writers with big ideas who can tell stories with heart, humour and style.

The final nine British writers were: Jon Barton, Steve Hevey, Jake Brunger, Kieran Lynn, Matt Hartley, Neesah Multhy, Cat Jones, Zoe Cooper and Daniel Anderson.
