Theatre Labs take place four times a year, we will put information up on the home page with dates of upcoming labs. To take part in a Theatre Lab you need to first book your place by contacting us by email at or phone 028 7127 9918. The labs can be very popular and spaces are limited so please do let us know that you would like to come along. To take part in the general Theatre Lab you need to submit four typed pages of script plus a five line synopsis in advance of the lab.

We like to give the facilitators and actors a few days to familiarise themselves with the scripts which is why we ask for them to be submitted about a week in advance. For the LGBT Theater Lab, we are a bit more relaxed and encourage people to bring in whatever they are working on, even if it is only a couple of pages. Also for the LGBT lab we encourage people who are keen to try out some acting to come along too. Theatre Labs usually take place on a Saturday during the day, in The Derry Playhouse.

The next Sole Purpose Theatre Lab will take place in The Derry Playhouse on Saturday 14th January 2017, please see the home page for further details. If you are interested in taking part please send us an email!
