NEW PERSPECTIVES THEATRE COMPANY
New Perspectives is a national touring theatre company and exists to create an ambitious, inspiring and vital programme of work. Championing new writing and adaptations, nurturing emerging talent and touring productions into the heart of rural communities is central to what we do.
Our blog exists to give our audiences and fellow theatre fans the chance to experience what we do through the eyes of different people in the company, and those who work with us. We hope it gives you a valuable insight into our practices and inspires you to get involved with us!
