Our SUPPORT strand is where we create work and provide development and training opportunities for emerging and early-career theatre makers in Scotland. Our aim here is to level the playing field and create the opportunities we wish we had access to. We want to help give that leg up to as many theatre makers as possible. On this page you can see our past SUPPORT projects, and see any opportunities available to take part.
