About the Cookbook

We think making theatre is like cooking good food. We have made this Cookbook to give you a flavour of all the different processes and ingredients that we use in our theatre kitchen. However this isn’t a recipe book – it won’t tell you how to recreate our shows. We want to inspire you to invent your own theatre feast!

Each photo, video, text and sound has been tagged with a number of categories so that you can find similar, matched and complimentary ingredients easily. Pick and mix the bits that suit your taste, as well as being surprised by a sharp note, a splash of heat or a wave of sweetness. There are various different ways of finding the ingredients.

You can:

  • Find exactly what you’re hungry for by searching the site. Just start typing!
  • Sample a wide range of ingredients in each category. Visit The Cookbook
  • Don’t know where to start? Check out our specials boards. We’ve put together our favourite titbits to get your juices flowing. The Specials Board
  • Watch us cook. We’ve made videos of our key processes. Search for Interviews
  • Meet the people who work in the kitchen. Find out what influences them and what their specialities are. Search for People
