The Shape of Things to Come 2018

From Wednesday 21 – Sunday 25 November, we bring to the stage the most exciting and hottest-off-the-press new projects out there, from CPT and its favourite artists.

These shows aren’t finished; most are being shown to an audience for the first time. In every instance, the artists need YOU to share your thoughts on what works and why. What we promise in return is creative boldness, a spirit of adventure, and a fresh take on (for example) class and sexuality, modern relationships and the destruction of Euston as we know it.
