At Trinity, we are proud to create original work and are delighted when we are able to collaborate with local artists by supporting and encouraging them in their careers. We wish to develop closer relationships with artists of all genres and have set up the Associate Artist scheme for this purpose!
Tom has written two original children shows for Trinity. Princess and the Pea which was produced both at Trinity and then toured to The Vaults Festival in London and subsequently played at local schools. This was produced in association with Francesca Murray Fuentes’s company You Are Mine.
This year Tom wrote The Tin Man of Oz, which was solely a Trinity Theatre production. The show played at Trinity in February this year, appeared at several local schools and was then developed as a theatre in education piece.
“Trinity Theatre gave me some of my earliest playwriting commissions and turned the scripts into beautiful, colourful productions. Seeing the energy that went into these and hearing the response from the local community was enormously fulfilling. It’s why people get into writing in the first place! Trinity is a vibrant, ambitious and completely essential venue. I’m so excited to be attached there, contributing what I can to their work in Tunbridge Wells and far beyond.”
