Support For Theatre Companies We Haven't Worked With Before


Central to our mission at New Diorama is finding brand new, exciting theatre companies to work with and develop.

We're always on the look-out for new approaches from groups from all across the UK who want to come and work with us in Central London. In order to make this possible, we have created a number of ways that groups we have never worked with before can bring themselves to our attention and perform at New Diorama.

These opportunties start for theatre companies who are just about to leave education - our NSDF Pickles Fund provides vital support to groups who need financial help to enter, and then showcase, their work at National Student Drama Festival.

Our Graduate Companies Programme equips the best graduating student groups with the skills and contacts to keep making their work professionally, once they've left full-time education.

Through our Two Night Stand scheme we're making it possible for regional theatre companies to showcase their work in London - removing all the costs of performing in the Capital and gifting them their entire box-office takings as an investment into their work.

And, through INCOMING Festival, our annual celebration of emerging theatre ensembles from around the UK, co-curated with A Younger Theatre, we provide a great opportunity to get your work seen by New Diorama's team and a chance to bring your work to new, enthusiastic audiences.

Finally, New Diorama are pro-actively looking to work with new Black, Asian, Ethnic Minority and Refugee theatre companies and are investing in providing free, no strings attached, development and rehearsal space - so that these groups can bring their ideas and creative visions to fruition - with our BAMER Companies Project
