Southwark Playhouse Launch Forge Artist Development Scheme


A development scheme for emerging theatre companies. 

FORGE gives emerging theatre companies the resources and platform to refine and develop their artistic voice. Four exceptional emerging companies are attached to Southwark Playhouse for 9 months. They receive free rehearsal space to R&D ideas, dramaturgical support from the Southwark Playhouse senior artistic team and a week long slot to platform a show in The Little space. The scheme also provides industry mentorship and bespoke workshops from the playhouse team to guide and empower them in this creative journey.
