the Five-0-Fresh: Forward collective
Five-0-Fresh is an intensive course open to young people living in Wandsworth. Run by theatre professionals, participants explore different aspects of theatre-making, create their own performance and tell the stories that are important to them. The scheme has been in operation for the last 8 years, and we are pleased to announce that we will reopen for applications for the next course in Summer 2018.
As part of Theatre503’s commitment to supporting new writers and the artists who bring their words to life, we have handed over our theatre space to alumni of Five-0-Fresh (Five-0-Fresh: Forward) and their associates, to showcase works they’ve created since having taken part in the programme.
