Let us guide you to authentic and meaningful opportunities for developing your creative collaboration in various theatrical contexts with your postgraduate degree in collaborative theatre practice.

Developed in response to sector needs and aimed at highly motivated graduates, our innovative MA provides the perfect opportunity for you to improve and strengthen your collaborative working within the theatre practice. The course involves the planning, development and creation of your own theatre companies, highlighting the importance of classical and contemporary texts from page to stage.

Our course creates opportunities for students to thrive in theatre practice, ranging from departmental undergraduate projects to engaging and working with creative industry experts on professional work experience in Theatres and Arts Centres in the local and wider communities. The programme will culminate in you forming a unique MA company and presenting your work to a public audience.
