One of the things that I love most about Fertile Ground is how everyone gets so excited about new works. New plays are the lifeblood of the theatre. It’s what keeps the art form alive. Having a good idea isn’t enough, however. You need to work with people who are experienced in bringing new ideas to the stage, so that you can have a fully realized idea.

Hand2Mouth, one of my personal favorite new companies, is hosting an exciting workshop for new performance works.
