Theatre Maker

THEATRE MAKER: A community of classes, workshops, talks, scratch nights, readings, and performance opportunities. Both in the theatre and online. 


CONNECT: Join our Theatre Maker Happy Hour  - a live chat online with fellow artists.

SHARE: Show new work at our monthly performance platforms: Theatre In The Pound - A scratch night, and New Stuff - An evening of rehearsed readings. Both currently online

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. Currently accepting enquires; email TheatreMaker [at] Thecockpit [dot] org [dot] uk (subject: Website%20enquiry.%20)
