"Being part of NORTH has been life-changing. It has given me the skills to help form and run a theatre company, the confidence to make new work and pursue ideas in a way I'd never have imagined I was capable of. It has enabled me to establish my own career as a performer and provided the kind of opportunities that are so rare, especially for artists based in the North East. I feel extremely lucky to have been part of it."

Michael Blair, The Letter Room. "One of the most vibrant and engaging entries to the Theatre Circuit in years." WhatsOnStage
