Engine Room is Omnibus Theatre’s regular scratch programme, giving theatre makers and artists the opportunity to develop and test up to 20-minutes of work in development. They usually take place once a month and each one features three brilliant theatre makers. It’s the best way to discover the next generation of theatre before anyone else.

Engine Room is part of our commitment to supporting artists and theatre makers, championing new voices and challenging perceptions. Artists that have previously presented work include; Nouveau Riché, Vera Chok, The Queer House, Opia Collective, Cocoa Butter Club and Playing On.

Engine Room puts the audience at the heart of the creative process. As an audience member you will be asked to fill in an anonymous feedback form following the show. All comments will be fed back to the artists directly who will use these to shape the next stage of their piece’s development.

Come and be part of the conversation.
