Theatre West

the company

New writing. It's what we do. From 1997 to 2013 we did it in one little place but now we're going to be doing all over the place! We upped sticks from the Alma Tavern, the venue we created, in 2014 and since then we've been visiting venues around Bristol and beyond producing some of the sparkiest new writing around.

We continue to work with some of the region's most creative organisations - recent projects have seen us collaborating with Bristol Old Vic, Tobacco Factory Theatres, Cheltenham Everyman, The Bike Shed in Exeter and Stepping Out Theatre Company.

2014 saw us producing our 100th new play and we're tremendously proud of that achievement. It's been brilliant to watch the blossoming careers of writers who we've worked with early on as they go on to bigger things.

Although we didn't produce any work in 2018 we have been busy looking to the future and 2019 will see us producing new work once more. We are offering an opportunity to women writers in the region to submit work to be produced this autumn. For more information on the project click here
