Theatre Maker

A community of classes, workshops, talks, scratch nights, readings, and performance opportunities. Join us in the theatre and online. 

CONNECT: Get to know your peers at our Theatre Maker Happy Hour, an informal gathering in the bar at The Cockpit, before our Theatre in the Pound scratch nights.

SHARE: Show new work at our monthly performance platforms: scratch night Theatre In The Pound and rehearsed reading series New Stuff.

DEVELOP: Try out new ideas and techniques in our courses, or book a 1:1 advice session with Theatre Maker programme director Amy Clare Tasker

SUPPORT: We offer reduced studio hire rates, box office splits, tech, design, direction, marketing, and social media support… helping Theatre Makers where we can. Find out how we support new productions here

Join the Theatre Maker facebook group and mailing list to find out when new activities are announced.
