Home Run is a new award from CPT, which sees selected companies supported with a £5,000 cash commission and free rehearsal space, as well as artistic, fundraising, marketing and business planning support, to develop a work-in-progress to a three-week run of a fully realised production as part of our artistic programme.
Made possible thanks to the generous support of Jerwood Charitable Foundation, Home Run is a new scheme supporting early-career artists making the transition from work-in-progress to a substantial run of a full production. Home Run will support three innovative theatre projects over three years (2016 – 2018). Each will be cultivated from R&D and work-in-progress programmes either at CPT or other venues, culminating in a run at CPT.
The recipient of the first Home Run commission was Milk Presents with Bullish, which headlined our ‘Come As You Are’ festival in Sept 2017. The second recipient was Racheal Ofori and Fuel with So Many Reasons, which headlined our ‘Calm Down, Dear’ festival in January 2018.
We will announce our third Home Run commission in spring 2018.
