Deep Blue – Paperwork Theatre

Riley is a woman of a certain age, caught in-between two worlds, above and below the water.

Teacup Commissions are a micro fund to support the development of new work by theatre makers; we encourage people to donate the price of a cuppa and every time the cup is full, local theatre makers can pitch to win it.

The scheme has been so popular in 2020, the micro fund has been raised to £200. The Paperwork team believes in sharing knowledge, developing skills and demystifying the industry for North...
