We are Theatre’s Writers Room.  

Stockroom is a writers room for theatre, and our writers produce new shows for stages around the country.

We believe strongly in social justice and work hard to maintain a diverse and open creative space, working with creatives from all backgrounds, but focusing on those who have socio-economic barriers that make it hard for them to work as an artist in this industry.  

While the content of our work might not always seem immediately political, the process behind it is.

Stockroom’s Writers Room

To make great shows, we need great writers.  

We have spent over 25 years finding some of the nation’s most influential writers and now we are doing it in a new way. Our new writers room has created a collaborative space for the making of exceptional new shows.  

Stockroom has always created some of the best new work in the country and we want to carry on this tradition by helping to create the next generation of theatre makers and contribute to a new, diverse canon. To this end we have invited writers onto our staff, who write together, focusing on making mid-scale work for audiences across the country. 

Our writers room is formed of exceptional writers from diverse disciplines and backgrounds.

Stockroom’s No.38

We opened a creative hub in North London, called No.38, which provided support to writers and our local community in the form of hot desk space and workshop programs.

Also home to a Podcast Studio, available for hires, No.38 was a professional space for writers and theatre-makers to work for free.
