The latest production to be part of the Propeller Programme is 'after birth' by Zena Forster

John Hoggarth, Co-Director at The North Wall says:
“We see the Propeller scheme as the perfect opportunity for us to really get to know local theatre- makers and to practically support them in getting their work in front of an audience at The North Wall. We are looking to collaborate with ambitious companies with the passion and energy to develop work and the courage to share that work with a paying audience. I believe that the best lessons in life are learnt through doing- our commitment to stage the final production needs to be matched with willingness to work with us to create a successful production. We hope the Propeller scheme will contribute to the sense of community amongst all those making work in Oxfordshire, recognising it as a place for artists to live and work and where audiences can access innovative new work.”

Anja Meinhardt, of OTM says:
“We are thoroughly excited about this collaboration between The North Wall and OTM, and delighted to introduce this new scheme together, which will provide Oxfordshire Theatre Makers with an excellent opportunity to develop great theatre with the support from one of Oxford’s brilliant venues. In kind support, paired with a consecutive run of performance dates in the theatre, and being part of an exciting programme of work, will make Propeller one of the things to look out for on the yearly calendar for anyone involved in making theatre – certainly an opportunity not to be missed! Directly in line with OTM’s commitment, to foster performance opportunities and support local theatre makers, this excellent residency will contribute to a thriving theatre scene here in Oxfordshire.”
