Artist Development

Live Theatre is dedicated to increasing opportunities for emerging theatre artists in the North East of England and across the UK.

From weekend writing courses and script submission opportunities, to bursaries and space for companies to develop new work, Live Theatre offers support and development to artists, writers and companies enabling new and emerging theatre artists to create quality work and shape the future of theatre.

“Live Theatre… has supported generation after generation of new writers, actors and theatre artists.”
