February news from house

Welcome to the February instalment of the house newsletter. This month we announce more details on two exciting opportunities, as well as recap on the discussions hosted on the house website.


Our new initiative has begun with the first call for proposals!

Supported by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, greenhouse is a three year initiative aimed at better connecting the ambitions of theatre makers, venues and audiences.  With this first call for proposals, we are looking for partnerships between venues and theatre makers that test new ways of working and seed ideas for new pieces of theatre.

More information can be found on the greenhouse pages of our website and if you would like to talk through your plans with us at any stage then we’d love to have that conversation: contact Richard Kingdom, greenhouse project manager, on 07714 216519 or richard@housetheatre.org.uk


Our website has recently had an update. Do take a look and let us know what you think.We have also posted several blogs to the website over the past four weeks. These include:


The house recommission is a £25,000 award to remake and tour a great piece of contemporary theatre.

Following the positive response to our first recommission, we are looking to repeat the process to find a production to tour in spring 2015. We will invest resources and support into a piece of work that has already been successfully produced and presented.

We imagine that the recommission will allow the company to return to a successful production, one that is substantively there, but which the company might want to further finesse.

To find out more about the recommission award, please visit the recommission page on our website.


Touring throughout the network this month are the following productions;
