    Big Bang is CPT’s regular scratch night: an explosion of performance from which new universes of theatre may one day emerge. These jam-packed platforms are highlights of the CPT programme: the place to see wild and wonderful new projects take their first steps.

    Each bill features three or four artists or companies performing 15-20 minutes of fresh-from-the-rehearsal-room work-in-development. (In the words of CPT's Front of House Manager Adam: it's like theatre tapas). They’re doing so because they want to know what works and what doesn’t, and they’d love you to tell them. So please join us for – and share your thoughts on – these exclusive previews of tomorrow’s most exciting theatre, today…

    Stiff Drink - 20 mins

    Stiff Drink is a dark comedy that follows three women as they each recount their experience at a house party gone wrong.

    Check out the trailer here.

    Often Has Trouble... - 20 mins

    Often Has Trouble...  is a non-verbal communication about what ADHD feels like in a body gendered as female. How do you solve and unsolvable puzzle?

    What We Said To Danny In The Strip Club - 20 mins

    Liverpool. A stripclub. A man called Danny. 

    This show is as much about two friends in pursuit of pleasure as it is the misguided assumptions of stripper performance.

    Bad Attitudes - 20 mins

    A scratch show about art, objectification and power. Myth, history and anecdote merge in a mix of music, mime and unsolicited opinions.

    Tobi King Bakare and this theatre deserve a shout-out for such a young, diverse audience. There is so much talk about audiences being full of over 60s and why, why can’t theatres get the crowds in to reflect society in general? Well, I’m happy to say that on a rainy Thursday evening, the theatre was completely full.
