The Paines Plough team are always looking for ways we can break down the process behind touring new plays in order to provide support for theatre makers throughout their careers.

We run loads of workshops every year all over the country. We run workshops about...

/ Directing
/ Acting
/ Writing
/ Producing
/ General Management
/ Setting up and running a company

And lots more.

We run workshops at events like TheatreCraft and alongside our productions on tour.

If you'd like to book a workshop please contact Charlotte here.

General Management/  

Last year we held a number of General Management workshops here at Paines Plough and met many people who were enthusiastic to explore this area of work within the theatre industry, all with an exciting future in the arts ahead. These events were such a success that we were eager to organise another.

As a result, we are thrilled to announce our next General Management workshop.

This is an opportunity for anyone interested in working in the theatre industry as a General Manager, or in Finance or Administration, to learn more about the profession. If this sounds like you, look no further!

Check out the full list of panellists below.  Team Paines Plough will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have. The evening will consist of a discussion, a Q&A session and plenty of time to network before and after the event over drinks.

The workshop will take place on Thursday 30 November 6.30-8.30pm, with registration from 6pm, in the Paines Plough Rehearsal Room. We are located on 4th Floor, 43 Aldwych, London, WC2B 4DN.

If you would like to register for a place, apply here by 10am Friday 10 November.
