What’s the Pitch is an event hosted as part of Mercury Theatre’s Connects scheme, aimed at sharing new ideas.

Come and pitch with a spirit of openness to the Mercury’s Artistic & Executive team. We are keen to hear from Theatre Companies in the East. Whether you are established and have a new project you are looking for collaborators on, or just starting out with your first show, we would love to hear from you!

The pitch will consist of:

  • Five-minutes to pitch your inspired idea in front of a panel of the Mercury’s Artistic Team
  • Five minutes of questions from the panel
  • Ten minutes of discussion and feedback from the panel

If you are interested in pitching, please complete the brief form via the button below by Wed 23 Aug. Once reviewed, our Talent Development Producer, Antony Stuart-Hicks will be in touch if we can offer you a meeting.
