The Tristan Bates Theatre was created by English actor Sir Alan Bates in memory of his son Tristan, who died tragically in 1990 at the age of 19 and at the outset of his acting career.
The versatile theatre space (which has 58-70 seats) hosts new writing, new adaptations, British premieres, contemporary theatre, regional companies, international companies, and solo comedy.
It also runs Sparks, an in-house project to support companies and writers in the development of a new full-length theatrical work.
The theatre is available for hire and accepts unsolicited projects (they do not consider scripts with no producer attached).
