Paines Plough 2021: Hope to See You There.

Posted on: March 31st, 2021 by ppEditor

“This year we’re making a Promise to 2021 because the world has changed and so have we.

If anything, 2020 has taught us there are no definites but that there is always hope. We are artists, we are activists and 2021 is about discovering how best we can reconnect and serve our national communities after the year we have all been through.

Our Promise to 2021 is a promise of hope. A hope to make some plays, a hope to make them with some people and a hope to share them with our national audiences.

In 2021, we promise to share the stories that should have been shared in 2020 as they are powerful, vital and need to be celebrated, along with new voices and a whole heap more.

We recognise that the world in which we will deliver these plays is now radically different. Our communities will lay at the heart of what we deliver with bespoke spin-off projects that respond to the present moment.

We will always put artists and audience’s safety first. We will only make and share work where it is safe to do so.

And finally, we will make some heart-stopping, feet-stomping, hair-raising, amazing shows. It’s been a while. Let us at it.

Hope to see you there.”

Charlotte and Katie, Joint Artistic Directors of PP
