BLACK LIVES MATTER

Camden People’s Theatre wishes to express its strong support for and solidarity with the worldwide protests against systemic racism in light of the appalling murder of George Floyd. At CPT, we still have lots to learn about anti-racism. We will take this opportunity to listen, learn more, and ask ourselves: how can we better build anti-racism into everything we do? … Read more

Guest Blog Post: Dylan Frankland on The House Never Wins

It’s 6pm on the 8th May. We log into zoom to chat to our producer. She’s asked us to do a tech run- normally a tech run in a theatre lasts ages but we’re expecting this to be rapped up in a out 45 minutes, an hour tops- after all we can’t really do a tech run properly when we … Read more

In This Day and Stage: Fringe-Watching Sprint 2020 (chapter 3)

In This Day and Stage: Fringe-Watching Sprint 2020 Chapter 3 Hello again!

Guest Blog Post: The Scrappy Young Sister called Gig Theatre
