New Writing

We have a commitment to providing spaces for new writing to be shared and produced both professionally and with our children, young people and adult groups. We want to give writers the space to develop scripts and see them go from page to stage.

Young People

As a theatre company that works with children and young people, we believe it's important that they get the opportunity to be creative and put on performances. Our participants will put on regular shows throughout the year.

Emerging Artists

Supporting emerging artists in the first stages of their career is an important part of our creative work. We want to facilitate positive spaces for professional development and opportunities. Our understanding of emerging is not age based, and we seek to work with people of all ages.


We believe that collaborative practice is good practice. At the Root creates spaces that artists take the ownership of and that enable positive working relationships to develop. Collaboration is key to all performances, projects and activities at At the Root.
