Hit for Six

6 weeks.

6 major new shows.

6 sensational theatre-makers.

For spring 2020, we have selected six of the most exciting new theatre projects out there to headline each week of our season. These are the projects we think are going to be big: big ideas, big impact – and ready to play to big audiences.

We’ve got artists new to CPT: Hannah Greenstreet and Charlotte Vickers with their extraordinary Andromeda; House of Blakewell with their comedy-theatre-music mashup on anxiety, Everything is Absolutely Fine. We’ve got returning favourites, including High Rise with combative grime musical Merryville and Amelia Stubberfield – of BULLISH fame – with Bonkers.

We’re proud to present these shows as the flagships of our spring season.
