Rep Stripped

Thu 18 April - Sun 28 April

Dundee Rep presents

Director Jordan Blackwood
Creative Producer Carla Marina Almeida

Rep Stripped is our new festival showcasing the best as-yet-unseen stories for the stage from Dundee and across the country in a stripped back, intimate environment.

Taking place over ten days in April, we are giving a platform to the creation and development of new work.

Rep Stripped is a playing space for local and national artists to test out their ideas, and a unique experience for an audience to be the first to see them.

What Can You Expect? 

Embracing a stripped back approach, we’ll be transforming the Rep stage into an intimate studio and using backstage areas of the building as alternative performance spaces.

At the heart of the festival will be three new and as-yet-unseen plays, accompanied by a programme of scratch showcases, new play readings, live music, installations, secret events and more to be announced.

Rep Stripped will also see us collaborate with National Theatre of Scotland, Playwright's Studio Scotland and other partners to offer a workshop programme and events across the city.


If you’re interested in joining us for the festival, hold tight until February when we announce the full programme and ticketing information. 

For now, join the conversation and tell us what you would like to see at Rep Stripped using #RepStripped, tagging us on social media or emailing

Get Involved

We’re inviting submissions from theatre makers across the country who have ideas they would like to showcase as part of Rep Stripped. We’re especially interested in hearing from artists with a connection to Dundee and the surrounding area.

Got an idea? Find the opportunity that suits you below and apply by Wednesday 9th January 2019 at 5pm.

All successful applicants will be offered a fee for their involvement in Rep Stripped – see the guidance notes below for more information.


PILOT is an opportunity for three artists, companies or collective to each test out an idea in the early stages of development with a supported residency during Rep Stripped.

One PILOT company will be offered a 5 day residency and a £1,500 budget; two PILOT companies will be offered 2-3 day residencies and a £750 budget. All companies will receive support from our production and artistic teams, and the residencies will culminate in a public sharing.


We’re looking for writers, directors, solo artists and variety performers to showcase brand new work in a series of SCRATCH readings and work-in-progress performances; ZIPPED secret events; and LATES events both in Dundee Rep and across the city.
