The New Theatremakers Project

16 June 2022

The Stephen Joseph Committee (SJC) of ABTT is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a grant of £3,000 towards the cost of this project by The Leche Trust.

The project is designed to support and promote undiscovered, new and emerging theatre makers with adventurous and vibrant ideas.  Through a mentoring process with professional theatre practitioners, one project will be selected for a week of in-the-round development free of charge at the Playground Theatre culminating in showcase performances at the Playground and at the Cockpit.  The final project, if sufficiently developed, will be offered the opportunity of professional performances at the Cockpit and provided with full technical and administrative support.


The SJC is awaiting the response to several other grant applications, but is now inviting public and private donations to fund this important project in the memory of Stephen Joseph and his support and encouragement of raw talent.


Further announcements soon.
