At Paines Plough we are always looking for ways to demystify how we go about commissioning, producing and touring new plays in order to provide support for theatre makers at any stage of their careers.
Thinking about touring your show, writing a play or embarking on a career in producing? Join Paines Plough Senior Producer Hanna Streeter for a first steps workshop on how to produce and support new writing.
This workshop will be discussion based. Participants will learn how Paines Plough goes about commissioning and finding new writers, and how to produce and tour a new play, from budgeting to fundraising, tour booking, negotiating and marketing. This workshop is suitable for producers, and for writers who are interested in connecting with Paines Plough or producing their own work.
Hanna is the Senior Producer at Paines Plough. She joined the company as Administrator in 2010, before being appointed as Assistant Producer in 2012, Producer in 2014 and Senior Producer in 2016.
