A vibrant celebration of the most engaging work being made in the South West.
Platform offers audiences the opportunity to see new and original theatre, made by the local artists and companies that we’re most excited about. This September we showcase three new shows, performed in The Drum, made by the Theatre Royal Plymouth’s Lab Associates.
Our Lab Associates scheme offers South West based companies/artists a year-long attachment to TRP. We are delighted to be collaborating with this talented cohort of local theatre-makers.
