Northumbria University

Live Theatre has an innovative partnership with Northumbria University, which forges cultural collaborations that engage with the people of the North East, enhance teaching and learning, inspire new research, and connect academic research with the world of professional theatre.

Part of the partnership is three-year collaborative residency programme running between 2015-2018.

The first joint Writer in Residence from 2015-16 was Paddy Campbell, writer of Live Theatre successes Wet House and Day of the Flymo, and a Northumbria University graduate.

The current Writer in Residence is Lindsay Rodden, former Literary Associate at Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse, who contributes to the teaching of Northumbria Performing Arts’ (NPA) undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and who is researching and developing an idea for a new play.
