In my role as Artistic Director of New Model Theatre, I was keen to do something to ignite ambition among theatre artists in Plymouth as well as calling attention to their wonderful work.  Outpost was inspired by any projects, festivals and artistic communities I’d seen whilst touring around the country and was hugely successful being featured in extensive local and national press.

In October 2014, New Model Theatre are partnered with Urban Splash and Barbican Theatre to turn a space in Plymouth’s historic Royal William Yard into a temporary theatre venue, Outpost.  From 6th – 25th October, Outpost hosted a three week season of work from some of the South West’s most exciting theatre companies including three existing shows, two specially commissioned works and one NMT show.
