The Scenic Route exists to initiate new forums for theatre makers to have their work seen and supported, and to open the doors for further development and collaboration.

We build diverse projects and create fresh opportunities to support a wide range of new theatre makers in their work, whilst also creating platforms for nurturing and encouraging the development of bold new works by established artists.


We are particularly interested in 'meeting' work at its earliest stages of conception, as well as working with exciting artists at the start of their careers, or when struggling to gain momentum (i.e before they become 'emerging'!)


Ensuring we champion and make theatre that remains engaging, brave, relevant and deserving of an audience, whilst similarly championing the artists' professional growth, is at the heart of all we do.
