REP Foundry 2016

“The Foundry has been completely life changing for me. In one year I’ve gone from feeling like I had no right to be trying to make theatre, to feeling like I have no right not to be.”
REP Foundry Theatre Maker, 2015

REP Foundry is an award-winning annual programme for emerging directors, writers, theatre makers and companies from across the West Midlands. This year-long development programme supports artists through workshops, making and sharing work and professional mentoring.

This year REP Foundry will offer exciting new theatre practitioners the opportunity to become Associates of The Rep. We will offer free professional development through a series of workshops, mentoring and masterclasses – alongside opportunities to make and share work in front of an audience. Now in its fourth year previous Foundry artists have gone on to have work produced by the Rep, in the wider region, nationally and internationally and have forged career-changing partnerships with the Rep and fellow Foundry artists.
