Got a brilliant idea for a new piece of theatre? Need our help to take it to the next stage?

Every year, Northern Stage look for the most innovative, thoughtful and intriguing idea for a new piece of theatre to win their Title Pending Award. They’ll give you space to develop it, showcase it and a production budget to make that happen.

The winning proposal gets:

• a £2000 production budget
• two weeks’ development time at Northern Stage
• a high-profile mentor
• a showcase on one of our stages
• full company support
• an ongoing commitment from us to support your development 

We had the whole building behind us, technical, financial and artistic support to let our imaginations run wild… and they did.
