We are new associate artists at Nottingham Playhouse!

Nottingham Playhouse have invited us into their building as we become their associate company!

We are delighted to be based in our lovely new office at Nottingham Playhouse and are excited to work alongside Nottingham Playhouse on projects over the next 12 months.

Nottingham Playhouse is committed to developing relationships with local artists by providing them with development and production support, allowing them to be creative in a nurturing environment.

We are proud of the collaborations we have had with Nottingham Playhouse so far.

In Autumn 2015, Fifth Word staged All The Little Lights, in their first production as Associate Artists at Nottingham Playhouse. We also presented the first Fifth Word Award for Most Promising Playwright in partnership with Nottingham Playhouse. After 102 entries were received from across the East Midlands, Leicester-based Toby Campion was announced as the winner, for his first play, Wreck. The award includes a 12 month attachment with us and Toby will receive £2000 and a mentor to work with him over the year to create a new play.

Watch this space for updates on Toby and new collaborative projects!

“Fifth Word exemplify the ambition and excellence of small scale companies working in the East Midlands today. They work with talented artists, create first rate work and then take that work across the country. We are delighted to working with them as an Associate Company and proud of the work we are making together”.
