INVEST IN NEW IDEAS

At NTW, we push the boundaries of theatre to create innovative and thought provoking productions in unexpected places. We engage with the nation and beyond to seek out untold stories and challenge what theatre is and what it can achieve.

Invest in New Ideas asks you to support our work, right from the start. Your donation can plant the seed for ideas to grow into our next big production, make connections to support more artists, start conversations to share more ideas and invest in more projects and share our productions with audiences across the nation.

Our 9th season of work delves into the realities of mental illness and loss, takes us to the historic moment of the referendum of the 8th amendment in Ireland, connects us by radio waves to the Venice biennale, and explores the dark side of the moon. This season, featuring one of Wales’ leading playwrights, Ed Thomas, and co-production with pioneering theatre company Hijinx, would not have been possible without people like you supporting the development of new ideas.

WHAT YOUR SUPPORT MEANS TO US

As a registered charity, we need to raise the money to create more opportunities for new ideas to flourish and grow.

Any amount you give could go towards part of the process, whether it’s £5 for a coffee meeting for a scriptwriter to pitch an idea, 0r £9000 for a full commission, every creative step is a vital part of what we do.
