Our internship programme offers creative internships for emerging female theatre makers: a hands-on experience to bridge the gap between academia and the world of professional theatre.

Heléna Ménesi and Ilona Fábián are both studying for their Master’s degree in theatre studies at Károli Gáspár Reformed University in Budapest, Hungary. As part of their Erasmus+ programme, we are thrilled to have them working with us on our upcoming production of The Unburied. The Saint of Darkness by András Visky.
