The Larder @ The Soho

The Larder partnered with Soho Theatre and Devoted & Disgruntled, to host an open space event around the question, "What are better ways for us to develop new musical theatre writing?"

The event's online archive will be up in a couple of weeks, and we'll put the link here. Meanwhile, check out the reports that are up on the D&D website here.



The Larder

Take another nibble...

The Larder is a support and information hub for theatre makers, and especially for musical theatre writers and composers, facilitated by Jenifer Toksvig and featuring guest contributions now and then.

The Larder is about organising events, facilitating connections between industry professionals, and advocating for musical theatre writing in particular.

It also loosely describes an awesome tribe of theatre makers who hang out in a Facebook group.

You're welcome to get in touch with us if you have questions about any aspect of the craft, process or business of writing musicals. We also organise script readings with actors, especially on early drafts.

You can hook up with us all over the place online, mainly under the nick 'Another Nibble'.

To join

Check out the link above for more info. The criteria are pretty simple: if you identify as a woman in some way, and you do something that you call writing, and you feel that a thing you have written could be called a musical, then you qualify to join!
