Creative Surgeries

Join Box of Tricks for a series of one-on-one Creative Surgeries for Northern theatre practitioners. We’re running fortnightly online conversations on Thursday afternoons.

Book your free place for a bring-your-own brew and a half-hour creative chat via Zoom. Let us know what you want to discuss – creative enquiry, producing, touring, casting, marketing and more – and we’ll match you with a member of the Box of Tricks team.
