18-25? Want a Career in Theatre?

TYPT puts emerging theatre makers aged 18-25 together with established artists to develop their practice, test ideas and produce a brand new piece of theatre in just 4 weeks each summer. We provide opportunities both offstage    and onstage.

Whether you are a performer, writer, stage manager, designer or technician, every element of the TYPT process will be open to you from initial production meetings to script development sessions; from meetings with graphic designers to the get-out.

Taking part is free.  Please note TYPT is open to participants aged 18-25 only.
