The Lab

The Lab

Theatre Royal Plymouth,
Royal Parade,
United Kingdom


The Lab is a creative space in the heart of the theatre. Local young people and communities, as well as emerging and professional artists come together to meet, experiment and discover, whilst creating and sharing their work.

We run a number of projects with specific communities, including refugees and asylum seekers, people with learning difficulties, socially excluded adults and young people, and people not in education, employment or training. The Lab was created in order to give an easily accessible base in the city centre. Further to this, we have set up The Lab Company which aims to support the development of early career theatre artists and practitioners.

The Theatre is located at the West End of Royal Parade in the city centre and contains our three auditoria; The Lyric, The Drum and The Lab. The Theatre is approximately 15 minutes walk from the train station and 10 minutes walk from the bus station – although most local buses stop on Royal Parade.
