Early conception or scratch performance is one of the ways we support the development of ideas, skills, practice, people and theatre.

From 1997 this was delivered through a programme of Rehearsal Room events that sought to uncover new plays and voices in partnership with the audience through rehearsed readings and workshops.

Rehearsal Rooms has been complemented by a range of Projects but from 2018 will be replaced by a new open call talent development scheme, creative training programmes, and a continuation of our one to one professional mentorships and commissions.
