Are you a theatre producer based in the South West with a passion for new plays?

From August 2019 – April 2020 Papatango will run a free course covering: developing new projects; pitching to venues and partners; company structures and branding; finances and fundraising; recruiting and managing teams; marketing and audience development; and the production process. This course is aimed at producers who plan to make new writing in the region.

The course culminates with three grants of £3000 each to help three producers/companies make their next new writing project in the region.
