Talent Development

Live Theatre’s Elevator programme is an ambitious and open approach to talent development. It is dedicated to increasing the opportunity and support for early career and independent theatre artists in our region of the North East as well as across the UK.

From weekend writing courses and script development opportunities, to bursaries and space for companies to develop new work. This is an investment in long-term, meaningful relationships with artists, enabling pathways into the sector and the creation of bold, diverse, contemporary new plays. It is an accessible and inclusive home for new ideas and a community of support where artistic risk and experiment can take off.

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