Arena Collaborative Theatremakers

Arena Collaborative Theatremakers is the heart of the Arena’s Development Programme. Meeting monthly in the Tilstone Studio, ACT is your chance to get your work seen in Wolverhampton.

ACT follows a basic scratch night format where local theatremakers can share anywhere between 5 and 40 minutes of any work-in-progress, at any stage of the creative process.

We are open to submissions from writers, directors and devisers, as well as dancers, storytellers and any other performing artist.

We can help you find other creatives to bring your work to the stage for these evenings.

Attendance is free and the audience is often made up of local writers, actors, producers, directors and other theatremakers meaning that the feedback is informed and detailed.

If you would like to submit for Arena Collaborative Theatremakers, please send scripts to Neil Reading at, and Sam Fleming at
