Theatre Maker


Supporting Theatre Makers creating original, motivated theatre.

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


CONNECT: Join our monthly Happy Hour  - a catch up on Zoom 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.
