About Doctor's Surgeries

Are you stuck in your creative process? Wrestling with a devised piece or idea? 

Book yourself in for a free appointment with the Idiot Doctor* (aka our Artistic Director Paul Hunter) who holds surgeries regularly. Appointments are short and sweet at around 20 minutes and they are a chance to talk through an idea you have or creative project you're working on, with the Doctor on hand to act as a sounding board for ideas, and to offer advice, guidance and fresh perspectives.

If you'd like to book an appointment, email us with some information about yourself and what you're working on. As the vast majority of our work is devised, we are more likely to be able to help theatre makers who are also making, or are interested in making devised work.

*If your problem is related to other elements of making theatre, e.g. producing, fundraising or marketing, there are other Idiot Doctors available! Please email us to book an appointment with another member of the TBAI team. 

If you'd like to be the first to know when and where Doctor's Surgeries are taking place, sign up to our newsletter.
