The Lab is Theatre Royal Plymouth’s smallest space and a place for exploration and experimentation. Often situated in the Lab, our Talent Development Programme seeks to support the most exciting artists, companies and creatives in making the theatre of tomorrow.

The Theatre Royal Plymouth is the largest and best attended regional producing theatre in the UK and the leading promoter of theatre in the South West. We produce and present a broad range of theatre in our three distinctive performance spaces – The Lyric, The Drum and The Lab – including classic and contemporary drama, musicals, opera, ballet and dance.

We specialise in the production of new plays and have built a national reputation for the quality and innovation of our programme. Our extensive Engagement and Learning work is pioneering and engages young people and communities in Plymouth and beyond.
