  • A chance to work with a professional company at the workshopping stage of a process
  • The opportunity to become part of a small nationwide company of young makers
  • A fee of £75 per session
  • An opportunity to come into the rehearsal room and watch your ideas come to life
  • An opportunity to workshop your own piece of work as a company

Further requirements:
