Theatre in the Mill

With full details of the Spring/Summer 2018 programme for Theatre in the Mill:

Our new season for Spring Summer 2018 is now live!
Welcome to Theatre in the Mill,

I am proud to present my first programme of work here. This Spring/Summer season is the start of a new conversation that represents the breadth of ideas, thoughts and experiences that we think says something vital and necessary about the world we inhabit and the one we are set to inherit. This programme explores notions of identity, both individual and communal.

The radio broadcaster Ira Glass referred to the story as a machine for empathy which is the perfect way to describe the ethos and ambitions of Theatre in the Mill. There will be many opportunities to get involved and we will be piloting a number of new projects over the year including a live art kids week, regular breakfast clubs, comedy workshops and film Sundays. Visit our website or join our mailing list for regular updates, offers and the latest news.

Come find us and join in the conversation.
