ABOUT ENGINE ROOM

Our Engine Room programme has our Theatre Without Walls ethos at its heart. We bring artists together to develop skills, networks and create new work at the greatest reach of their imaginations and ambitions.

From July to September, Engine Room will focus on resilience, acknowledging our roots, and the things that keep us grounded and centred, as part of Engine Room: Grounding
