The Greenhouse is an opportunity for devising theatre makers to be artistically supported in the development of a new work. Applications will open soon for the 2024 season.

The Greenhouse is a two-part process which aims to support directors to find avenues for getting your work made. It will support and upskill you with tools to create original, creatively invigorating theatre.

Part One consists of a weekend hui comprising of six practical workshops with leaders in their field, covering all aspects of a work development – from writing funding applications and budgets, to approaches to set design, physical devising, and storytelling. This hui is for a group of 10-15 theatre makers.

Part Two consists of a two-week development workshop facilitated by Red Leap Theatre, resulting in a work-in-progress showing. Productions will be selected from Part One to go forward to this workshop, and will be given a small budget as a contribution towards costs.

We will encourage connection and collaboration to unlock the potential of new ideas.


Get in touch if you would like to be contacted when 2024 applications open, or keep an eye on our social media platforms for announcements.

“The practitioners who came in to work with us opened up parallel worlds that I hadn’t considered previously, removed preconceived limits. I’ve come away with new and practical tools to continue developing with. It was also a terrifically stimulating environment being with all these other great makers.” Greenhouse Participant
