Summary of Main Project Findings in 100 Words or Less...

I looked into the relevance of New Writing and New Theatre; I discovered a range of opinions, some deeply personal to those who create theatre, and those who attend the theatre. 

In summary; I found that the practitioners I interviewed were deeply passionate about ‘telling a story’ that they felt would resonate with their audiences, and believed that the response to New Writing was because of this relevance.


While there is a market for ‘escapism’ theatre (i.e. large scale West End Musicals) audiences still wish to see stories of their own experience. One practitioner called this “bearing witness.”

Word Count: 98


Wow, that was difficult to fit under 100 words!
