About us

OTM is a network for professional theatre makers in Oxfordshire. We run social and professional development events, provide online and in-person networking, create and distribute theatre-related resources, and promote locally-made work to venues and audiences.

We believe in:

  • The artistic and economic value of theatre

  • The value of the work of the artist

  • Investing in Oxfordshire’s theatrical infrastructure for the benefit of both professionals and audiences

  • Our local community

  • Collaboration and not competition
