PILOT Nights provide a space where theatre-makers can develop their work and try out new ideas in front of a lively and supportive crowd; the pieces presented are all works-in-progress.
We have been running for over 10 years and our events remain an important part of the creative landscape within the West Midlands and beyond.
Theatre-makers have used the PILOT Nights platform and the feedback it provides to test out risky ideas, develop their work into finished pieces, and build valuable relationships within the industry.
The PILOT Night [at Birmingham Rep] was a fantastic evening of new work from a variety of artists, some of whom we already knew and some who were entirely new to us. It opened The Rep up to a range of high quality work, vivid voices and artists who, thanks to PILOT Nights, we are now working with on a more permanent basis. It was fantastic to host the evening and be a part of supporting such a wide array of work by so many exciting theatre practitioners.
