Actors

When actively casting one of our shows, we usually do this through Spotlight as well as posting relevant details here and circulating them on Twitter. At other times, due to our size we are unable to accept unsolicited submissions. The only exception to this is if you are a Merton, Wandsworth or Sutton based actor. Get in touch and we’ll keep your details on file as we love working with local people where possible.

Writers

We commission around one show a year and do not generally perform existing plays. We therefore are not able to read unsolicited submissions and have to be very focused about the work we solicit. We occasionally have open calls and other opportunities for writer. These will be posted here and on Twitter, as well as other writers networks. If you are particularly interested in what we do and would like to make us aware of your work, drop us an email with a writing CV and we’ll keep your details on file and get in touch should anything come up. As with actors, we are particularly interested to hear from those who live locally to us.

Designers, composers and other creatives

We’re always keen to be introduced to the work of composers, designers and lighting designers we don’t know. Drop us a short email with a CV and we’ll keep you in mind.

Facilitators and workshop leaders

We deliver creative workshops in a range of artforms across Merton for people of every age. If we are recruiting for a specific project opportunities will be advertised here. But if you’re a facilitator or workshop leader and would like to introduce yourself, particularly if you live locally, just get in touch.

Interns and Volunteers

Around our shows we often have opportunities for interns or volunteers. We’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in working with us. Drop us a short email telling us why and we’ll be in touch should anything come up.
