Development Nights

The White Bear has a long-standing commitment to offering opportunities to emerging theatre-makers. We dedicate Sunday/Monday night slots to theatre makers at an early stage in their careers seeking a platform on which to share their work, as well as more established playwrights’ work which is in development. Do get in touch at if you’d like us to consider your work for these nights.

Monday 19th December – DRIFT Scratch night

drift-christmasDrift Shop is a new scratch night aimed at bringing together emerging playwrights, directors, and actors. The night will be a relaxed evening of new writing and theatre discussion. We hope that you will join us for an evening of original, exciting theatre and an opportunity to see the latest up-and-coming talent.

Drift Shop is nearly a year old, and to celebrate we are having a Highlights review. We have had many wonderful pieces put on at our Drift Shop nights over the past year. For this event we are bringing back just some of those great pieces, which have been developed using our audience’s feedback. We hope to see you there.

 Coming soon:
