Plus One

For care experienced young people aged 16-25

Are you interested in performing or working backstage at Derby Theatre?

We are looking for up to 12 care experienced young people aged 16-25 from across Derby/shire to join our Plus One Company.

Over the summer on 23 – 27 August you will be exploring ideas for our show as well as experience working with different creatives. You will have the opportunity to work with a range of professionals, from playwrights, theatre directors, and our backstage production team. We will continue working together during October half term (week of 25 October) where you can decide your role in the company, either as a performer or backstage.


This project is all about you and your ideas. Together we will create a performance about what the care system means to you, that will be staged at Derby Theatre on 15 & 16 November.


These sessions will be relaxed and fun, working together with a small number of people to develop your skills in a creative environment working alongside artists and the Plus One team. Lunch will be provided every day and travel can also be reimbursed if needed.

If you are interested in taking part, please contact:

Katie Turner – or call: 07920587035
