Emerging Artists Theatre acts as an incubator for new voices from the page to the stage. EAT was founded 20 years ago to provide a dynamic home where playwrights and artists explore their work from their imagination and guide it through development towards full artistic realization. It is a process that involves audience interaction with the artists and enables the artists to be the key ingredient in the development of their work. EAT is proud to have given that opportunity to over 3000 artists since its inception.
