Behind the scenes at Paines Plough.

Insights is a project offering behind the scenes access to the creative and practical conversations and processes behind making work at Paines Plough.

The plan is to try to demystify the way we go about commissioning, producing and touring new plays to offer an insight into professional production.

Insights will feature workshops and digital resources collecting informal conversations with artists, video interviews with our in-house staff and production-based teams, practical advice and tools and anything else we can think of that might be of interest both to PP audiences and practising amateur or aspiring professional theatre-makers.

Insights works best when it’s a conversation. So if there’s something you, your friends or your colleagues would be particularly interested in hearing about get in touch and we’ll see what we can do.



Introducing our new podcast - INSIGHTS.

INSIGHTS is a new series of podcasts live from the Paines Plough rehearsal room. Featuring conversations between playwrights, directors, stage managers, actors, set designers and more. 

You can listen to it here if you have iTunes, here if you have Spotify or here if you have neither.
