2014/5 - 2Magpies Theatre - Our mentored company for 2014 is Nottingham-based 2Magpies Theatre. Founders Tom Barnes and Matt Wilks create new and exciting devised live performance in unique, site responsive locations in Nottingham and beyond.

2012/3 - The Gramophones - The Gramophones are a theatre company based in Nottingham, who specialise in witty, interactive theatre with a twinkle in its eye. They are an all-female company who came together in 2009 through the chance discovery of notes in cafes, reading 'Looking for quirky performers for a theatre project'; these were placed there by Hannah Stone, Artistic Director, to bring a group of like-minded theatre makers together. The Gramophones' work is informed by clowning techniques and as a result is playful, fun and engaging. They place their audiences at the centre of their performances and regard them not only as voyeurs but as players in their work.  All members of The Gramophones have a wealth of experience working within theatre as both performers and practitioners. For more information visit www.gramophonestheatre.com
