Engine Room is a regular evening at Omnibus Theatre where theatre makers test out shows they are developing. Previous artists include Stella Duffy, Katie Bonna, Unholy Mess, YesYesNoNo and Nouveau Riche.

Pieces developed in Engine Room sometimes become part of our Festivals. Many of our Associate Artists started their relationship with Omnibus Theatre through taking part in Engine Room.

  • Up to three days of free rehearsal space

  • Meaningful audience feedback

We run 1 -2  Engine Rooms per season.
