A vibrant showcase of new work that is being developed right now by local theatre makers.

We will be presenting two brand new work-in-progress sharings from exciting artists who are based in Plymouth.


Everyone Except SHE – By Embers Ignite

Successful birth rates are plummeting, and the government turns their blame to women. Illegalising abortions, women are branded ‘impure’ and a burden to society if they miscarry. Everyone Except SHE follows the story of a young women who must fight for her life after she miscarries an unwanted pregnancy and turns to her doctor for help to hide her miscarriage and fake her pregnancy.

Content Warnings: This performance references miscarriages and rape.


Future Proof by Claudia Jeffries

Future Proof is a personal account of living with OCD and collaborative exploration of our concept of the future and how it informs our experience of the present, looking specifically at how that relationship has been disrupted over the last two years.

Future Proof was originally developed for Plymouth Fringe online 2020 and is currently being adapted for live performance.

Content warnings: Discussions around mental health, OCD and some strong language.


These performances are a part of our Autumn season in The Lab.

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