Hamlet performed by TRBTS in November 2019, as an immersive, promenade production, in the Georgian backstage apartments of Theatre Royal Bath.

You’re a stranger here, who you trust is a choice. 

So, choose. 

When your friend goes unexpectedly missing, you are the one tasked with finding the answers. But, in a dangerous world of high stakes dealings, rapidly eroding ancient lands, and volatile shifting alliances, do you have what it takes to untangle the web? 

Join the Egg Assembly in a race against time to uncover the clues and unearth the truth about this world and ours. 

Have you got what it takes to discover the answers? Choose your route carefully… 

Directed by Soph Jacobs-Wyburn, produced by Alex Duarte-Davies. Routes was an online experience. A unique, digital environmental crime thriller, played on a solo desktop device. Full company details below, please get in touch with any questions.

“Routes succeeds stupendously in creating dread, anxiety and excitement with a distinctive trick. Rather than relying on slick video production, haunting soundscapes or interactive Zooming that so much of theatre’s digital pivot has prioritised, it simply throws its audience into a familiar, cortisol-spiking situation: a new job in which you don’t really know what you’re doing but you keep getting emails…

Funny, weird and smartly made, it’s well worth the hour it takes to uncover Axle’s fate.”  – Stage **** Review

Theatre Royal Bath Theatre School aims to offer an inclusive program of training and workshops, that cover all disciplines of theatre-making and are open to any young person aged 5 to 25 years old.

Each week we run over 17 hours of sessions – working directly with young theatre-makers to develop their skills, mentor their artistic growth and support their creative drives. This includes our Backstage program, unique in the South West, offering a dedicated weekly space to learn technical and design led disciplines, as well as the opportunity to apply their skill-set to Theatre School productions wherever possible.

Our curriculum offers structured development of valuable skill-sets, which could be applied across a wide range of life experiences. We also promote an ethos of respect, daring, and self-identity throughout, fostering a sense of community and strong roots to support their growing creativity.

We aim to empower young artists and theatre makers to explore their own unique, capable, and persuasive voices. But we also hope to witness the development of life-long friendships, communities of peers offering support, and building enduring memories.
