We are looking for people who wish to develop and share their skills in an area of theatre production which they are passionate about. Some examples of these may include:

  • Music Composition

The Creative Assistant roles are paid opportunities. Appropriate access support will be available. The production will be rehearsing in London and opening in Nottingham w/c Sunday 4th March 2018, it will then tour to 5 other UK venues.
