How to Get in Touch
Putting on a show at the OSO
Bring a Play
We are always looking to programme entertaining and inventive theatre. If you are from, or know of, a production company looking for somewhere to perform please do get in touch. We aim to programme a mixture of local theatre groups, emerging companies, and more established touring groups, in order to support companies at all stages of development whilst providing our audiences with top quality and innovative theatre. The OSO has a black box stage and raked seating. Capacity for the theatre is 56 on the raked seating, but extra rows can be added to make 74. For some music and comedy events we open the space out to 130. Please read the Production Handbook for information on technical specifications, marketing, financial deals and the process of producing a show at OSO. If you would like to bring a show to the OSO, please fill out our Application Form, or email [email protected] with any questions. If you are an aspiring playwright not yet ready to mount a full production yourself, please head to the Dispatches page on our website for information about our new writing scratch night.
