    We offer seed commissions to artists from marginalised backgrounds, to support the development of innovative new theatre projects.

    The scheme has been running since 2015 and has supported over 25 artists to make bold, new, adventurous work. Successful projects to have emerged from the scheme include Lanre Malaolu’s Elephant in the Room, Paula Varjack’s The Cult of K*nzo, Rachael Young’s Nightclubbing and HighRise Theatre’s Merryville.

    Successful candidates will receive £750, one week’s rehearsal space (or one week’s supported digital R&D), and the opportunity to perform as part of our artistic programme.

    If you have any questions you can email us at artists@cptheatre.co.uk
