Starting out can be really hard! Perhaps you have an idea but don’t know where to begin. Or you have a team of people but nowhere to meet. Or you want to make a piece of theatre but you’re not quite sure how to get it programmed, produced or put together. Four of a Kind is a programme for emerging companies & artists who are at the beginning of their journey who think they would benefit from a helping hand with the nuts and bolts of producing a show on the Fringe.

Who’s it for?

Four early career companies who need support establishing themselves as a company and getting a project off of the ground.

What’s on offer? 

  • A week of free rehearsal space.

  • Bespoke artistic support with a project.

  • One to one producer surgeries.

  • Work-in-progress showings at the VAULT Festival in March 2020 with invited programmers.

  • Follow up meetings to ensure the work has a future life.
