Welcome to Stockroom
Stockroom produces new work for the stage. We tour to theatres around the country, bringing communities together with stories that unite us around our basic humanity. Our commitment to making work designed to travel to theatres around the UK is historic and enduring.
We work with artists from all backgrounds to deliver the best writing, sharing quality work around the country and the world.
We work with partners, creatives and audiences from a range of backgrounds, in a variety of locations, to develop new live art experiences for the midscale stage.
We want to harness the creativity found throughout the country and contribute to culture locally in the places that we visit.
We put the audience first in every piece we create while remaining true to our traditions of high quality and politically motivated theatre.
We believe that this approach will allow people across the country to be part of creating and also experiencing the highest quality new work for the midscale.
The Writers Room
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 six writers – Stockroom Artists – onto our staff, who write together, focusing on making mid-scale work for audiences across the country.
While the content of our work might not always be immediately political, the process behind it is. 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.

At the same time we have opened a new creative hub in Holloway which provides support to writers and our local community in the form of free desk space and workshop programmes.
