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 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!
Monday 18th January 2021 - A Theatre in the Pound Ideas Jam in our virtual bar (BYO). Where do we go from here? What online and live theatre experiments can you bring us this year?
Come chat to the Pound Team and tell us your ideas! Not sure if your piece can work online? Come run it by us, we'd love to hear all about it. Or want to find out about what bringing a piece to our live theatre shows is like and get some ideas of how to best use our fantastic space? Or just come say Hi and find out what its all about.
All so very Welcome!! We'd love to see some performers that we know and definately some we don't. Lets work out together where we go from here. Don't forget to BYO!

Got something to perform? We give you a technical rehearsal with online support, with stage manager and technician and a place in our online show. Each company also receives a few minutes of feedback from our supportive and generous audience.
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!
And Theatre In The Pound part of our Theatre Maker programme, so you become eligible for cheaper studio hires as well as further possible opportunities to present your work.
MORE DATES COMING UP SOON. And keep checking in to see when we are moving back into the theatre
