“Supporting the arts, especially in these more difficult economic times, is something we’re proud of as a company. It’s terrific to be associated with one of the leading theatres in the region. Live Theatre has shown terrific enterprise in its writing programmes, its globally-recognised productions and its youth development work” Mark Squires, chief executive, The Benfield Motor Group

"I have a relationship with Live Theatre which is the envy of many playwrights and is probably unique in British Theatre. Live provides a home for its writers who come back again and again over the years whilst the theatre itself fosters new relationships which add to the fold... Live Theatre’s dedication to writing about the place it is based in, forging a language with a unique identity is, I discover, a rare thing”
Lee Hall, playwright
