Each year we stage around 12 theatre productions between our degree and diploma courses. Each is carefully chosen not only to give the students the best possible platform but to contribute to the professional theatre scene in Bristol. We are now working with our new Literary Manager, Breman Rajkumar, to search out diverse and stimulating texts that will give Bristol audiences the chance to see a new and exciting range of theatre. 

Our first-ever season of degree-level work opens at the Tobacco Factory this October. We'll publish details of the shows and how you can book them here. For now, please check out some of our College-level student shows below.



A woman wakes up with a stranger beside her. A student argues with his lover. A single mother fights to feed her baby. A married man flirts with two younger women. And far away, one devastating event is about to change all their lives forever.

Simon Stephens’ latest play, LIGHT FALLS, is a richly layered homage to family and identity; an intensely moving play about life in the face of death and how our love survives us after we’ve gone.
