Best Newcomer Season
The finest up and coming comedy acts from Edinburgh and Melbourne wrapped up in Best Newcomer Season bow.
Our year long attachment programme for artists.
Under commission and in residence to create new work for our stages, our six invited artists immerse themselves in the life of Soho Theatre over 12 months.
To help develop and support our Soho Six, there are regular meetings with (and dramaturgical support from) our Artistic team. We hold masterclasses. We take them on a week long writers’ retreat. And we also provide them with the opportunity to meet and collaborate closely with other artists, see our year-round festival like programme and get to understand our audiences.
We’re incredibly proud of our Soho Six programme and how it helps to develop and support artists. Our alumni include Chris Chibnall, Rebecca Lenkiewicz, Bryony Kimmings, Phil Porter, Charlotte Josephine and Arinze Kene. Plus Olivier and BAFTA award winners debbie tucker green and Laura Wade.
Daniel Alicandro, Caligula’s Alibi, Jessie Cave, Theresa Ikoko, Rachel Wagstaff, and Robert Whitelock & Samson Kayo.
Our Soho Six programme is generously supported by The Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation and Jack and Linda Keenan.
