See It First Programme
Image item
Creative Director Corey Campbell, interim CEO Neil Murray, and the whole team at the Belgrade Theatre Coventry are delighted to reveal details of See It First – a programme of new plays, workshops involving some of the UK’s leading directors and writers, and conversations between artists and audiences, all running at the theatre from 17 – 27 July.
There will be a major day-long symposium focussed on co-creation, a Black Leadership panel event, workshops on facilitating, devising and playwriting, and a piece of devised work presented by the Belgrade Ensemble, a cohort of the next generation of local performance artists. These events will be aimed at local artists and creatives who want to develop their craft, and to connect with their peers and industry leaders.
Three shows will be performed in B2 as part of See it First, giving audiences the opportunity to see brilliant new writing prior to the Edinburgh Festival in August. The shows will be performed as part of Paines Plough’s annual Roundabout programme in Edinburgh.
As previously announced, these shows will include darkly comic new drama, My Mother's Funeral: The Show, (a Paines Plough, Mercury Theatre, Belgrade Theatre, Landmark Theatres and Royal & Derngate Northampton co-production), running from Thursday 25 – Saturday 27 July.
