We programme around six to twelve months in advance. The programming is led by David Lockwood (Artistic Director), with input from Emily Souter-Johnson (Artist Support Producer) and Kelly Johnson (Director of Strategy and Communication).

We have three main strands of programming.


These are when companies come to us for up to three weeks to develop a new production, whilst showing existing works. The new production is then presented in work-in-progress showings.


Companies come to us for at least a week with an existing production. These will often be shows developed in residencies.


We present a varied programme – theatre, music, film, conversations – often around a theme. These are curated, though sometimes there’s a call for submissions, as with the annual From Devon With Love Festival. Keep your eyes peeled to our Opportunities page.

Additional Information

It is very rare for us to programme a company whose work we haven’t seen for a run or residency. Please invite us to your shows, giving us as much notice as possible.

We will happily meet with every Devon based professional or aspiring theatre maker. If you’d like to meet with us, please e-mail Emily.
