TITLE PENDING: The Northern Stage Award for New Theatre

We take our responsibility for nurturing artists very seriously, especially in these uncertain times. The search is now on for the winner of our sixth Title Pending award. We are looking for a fresh and inspiring idea for a new piece of theatre. Once we've found it, we develop it, we nurture it, we support it and we show it. We want you to give us that idea. 

The 2015 winner was Zoe Murtagh and Victoria Copeland with their show Sacre Blue. Read more here. 

"The 2 day selection process was really valuable, so I can’t wait to get started on the show!" Hannah Nicklin, 2014 winner

“We had the whole building behind us, technical, financial and artistic support to let our imaginations run wild….and they did." Jemma McDonnell, The Paper Birds, 2012 winners

Winning Title Pending means we're able to take risks, think big and make it happen." Annie Rigby, Unfolding Theatre, 2013 winner

The judges from different theatres across the country have given us ongoing support since winning the award and have opened up a whole lot of new national networks” Amy Golding, Curious Monkey, 2013 winner
