Situation

A Forest Forge Commissioning Fund would ensure that rural audiences are not forgotten when new scripts are commissioned! Few smaller companies can afford to commission work for their audiences and we believe that this means theatre may potentially lose its relevance for rural and more isolated audiences. The Fund would create work that could be used in future throughout the theatre world and support playwrights by providing work and development opportunities.

Solution

By creating an ongoing Commissioning Fund Forest Forge Theatre Company would ensure that the company had the necessary funds to develop new scripts.
