New writing. It's what we do. Since 1997 we've done it in one little place but now we're going to be doing all over the place! We've upped sticks from the Alma Tavern and we'll be visiting venues around Bristol and beyond producing some of the sparkiest new writing around.
We'll continue to work with some of the region's most creative organisations - recent projects have seen us collaborating with Bristol Old Vic, Tobacco Factory Theatres, Cheltenham Everyman, The Bike Shed in Exeter and Stepping Out Theatre Company.
2014 saw us producing our 100th new play and we're tremendously proud of that achievement. It's been brilliant to watch the blossoming careers of writers who we've worked with early on as they go on to bigger things. This year we’re working with some of the brightest new talent in the region to bring you another season of cracking new plays.
