Theatre In The Pound

Our Monthly Scratch Night. LIVE ONLINE

Mon 15 Mar 2021 to Mon 19 Jul 2021

Theatre In The Pound


A  not-for-profit night, designed for individuals or groups of performers to try out, experiment or showcase new work at The Cockpit - NOW ONLINE! 
We have had new writing, monologues, large groups, physical theatre, dance, comedy, performance art, movement ...and it all works online! Brilliant!

Come and experiment with us and push the bounderies of Zoom. We love stuff that works and also stuff that doesn't. Each piece is followed by a short feedback discussion with our lovely audience, to help companies develop their work.

Exciting News: We will hopefully be back live in the theatre this year! Pending changes to lockdown regulations, April will be our first TIT£ live show back in the auditorium, but we have had such fun hosting our online 'Theatre in the Pound at Yours' and we are so thrilled that it has meant performers and creatives from all around the globe have been able to join us that we want to keep going! So we will be alternating our live and online shows from March. Best of both worlds!

We love to make the shows as varied as possible so however 'out there' or unusual you think your work might be we'd love to meet you!
