Artists at
Nonsuch Studios

Nonsuch Studios has and always will be an artist-led organisation, and that doesn’t just extend to those artists we have embedded in our team, but to artists from across the wider-East Midlands who we collaborate with, support and champion across our programmes.
The key ways we support Artists at Nonsuch Studios are through our in-house artist offer Theatre Lab and via our partnership and active membership of In Good Company.
Theatre Lab

Theatre Lab is Nonsuch Studio’s in-house offer for artists. A programme of workshops, networks and opportunities to bring together creatives, practitioners, artists and producers from across theatre and performance in Nottingham (and the wider East Midlands).

As a small organisation, we’re all too aware of how important opportunities that support artists and theatre-makers to thrive are and so Theatre Lab aims to enable greater connectivity and facilitate opportunities to those who need it through a number of simple programmes and initiatives.

Theatre Lab focusses on supporting the making of exciting, dynamic and diverse theatre that’s created through a devised and non-text-based approach as well as support for writers.

In its simplest form Theatre Lab is a programme any artist can sign up to, you’ll get discount in the Nonsuch Kitchen; access to special events, socials & meet-ups; last minute studio discounts; and ticket offers across our programme. Theatre Lab is as much about opening up the space for you to do your thing as it is about pointing you to the support that you need from our partners, such as In Good Company.

In Good Company

In Good Company is the Artist Development programme for the Midlands, bringing together over 9 venues to champion and support amazing theatre made, produced and connected to the Midlands.

Nonsuch Studios were the first Nottingham City partner to join the programme in 2018 after being part of the original cohort of Associate Artists in 2014.

Programming at Nonsuch Studios

In January 2024 we ended our tenancy at 92 Lower Parliament Street, drawing to a close 5 years of Nottingham's only independent fringe theatre. We're therefore no longer programming artists or shows but strongly encourage artists interested in touring to Nottingham to contact other local venues based on their published programming guidance.
