Home Run is a major new commissioning scheme at CPT. It 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 project from work-in-progress to three-week run of a fully realised production. Which is then shown as a prominent part of our artistic programme.
Made possible thanks to the generous support of Jerwood Arts and Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Home Run is designed to support early-career artists making the difficult transition from work-in-progress to a substantial run of a full production.
