    120 mins

You’ve heard of going to the gym for your body – well Furnace Tuesdays are going to the gym for your creative skills.

The third Tuesday of each month, we are inviting artists to come together to flex their theatre making muscles, possibly to share games and exercises, but importantly to build community and find support through your peers. Any theatre maker at any stage of their career is welcome to come along, you might want to bring your favourite warm up to share, you might like to just enjoy learning some new ones, or you might want to chat and share your recent career successes and challenges in a supportive environment of people on the same journey.

Playhouse staff will be around to support, but Furnace Tuesdays are a session by theatre makers, for theatre makers.
