This exploration of the theatre will bring to life the secret world of The REP; the people that have breathed life into the building over the past 100 years, the secret stories and untold tales that never made it to the stage and the public drama that did.

Interactive, theatrical and vivid, come and experience The Old Rep’s stories bursting to life. Hidden Histories will be created by the hottest emerging writers, directors and theatre makers from the REP Foundry. There will be loads of activities appropriate for all ages. Try on costumes, write your own press report, and help get the theatre ready for its first ever performance. The Hidden Histories Events are being created by emerging writers, directors and theatre makers who are part of the REP Foundry project in partnership with a community cast.
