I’m blown away by what CPT has been doing these past few months. Feels like it’s totally blazing a trail, artistically & politically” – Chris Goode, theatre-maker
Camden People’s Theatre is a central London space dedicated year-round to supporting early-career artists – particularly those making work about issues that matter to people right now. Our mission is to refresh and strengthen the performance sector with a new generation of artists who bring a fresh perspective to contemporary concerns, create new artistic forms with which to address them; and to present their work to a new generation of audiences.
