The Sole Roots programme offers opportunities for script development and theatre making for aspiring writers and theatre makers. We have professionally produced work generated in the workshop programmes. Our tailored approach to programme delivery means we welcome working in partnership with community, voluntary and statutory organisations as well as individuals.

Through the new Sole Roots Theatre Lab workshops we want to facilitate you to bring your story and your identity into writing for theatre.

We want to enable increased visibility for those less seen on the professional stage, for example

Writers and actors with disabilities

Stories from immigrant communities

LGB and Trans people
