Doorstep Theatre Festival

Doorstep Theatre is a touring partnership between Torbay and internationally acclaimed producers Battersea Arts Centre. The next season of Doorstep Theatre runs from 26-31 October 2016.

Through local organisation Doorstep Arts, the Collaborative Touring Network is providing amazing theatre performances in non-traditional theatre spaces. It also creates opportunities for regional theatre-makers, workshops with artists, new regular weekly offerings for participating in theatre locally, and performance platforms for existing theatre groups in Torbay.


Advance tickets for all Spring festival shows will go on sale from the beginning of March 2016.

Scratch Proposals Welcome!

If you are a school drama class, a community or amateur dramatics group or an independent artist or company and would like to perform a short scratch piece (5-15 mins in length) we want to hear from you!
