The Silver Lining is a theatre collective that gives graduates the platform to network, collaborate together and perform.

Creating The Silver Lining Theatre Company...

The Silver Lining is a theatre collective comprised of 2020 drama school graduates. Over the course of 2021 we will be running workshops, networking sessions, staging original work, published plays and collaborative projects at East London venues. This Fundraiser is to kick start our debut Silver Lining production and also to help us with our first year’s company costs.
We are called The Silver Lining because we strive to find light in dark situations, we are here to bridge the gap between graduation and the industry to nurture and support ideas that might otherwise get lost in the noise.


We are an associate company of the Redbridge Drama Centre who are supporting the company with rehearsal space so that as a theatre company can offer a platform to emerging artists.
Our creative aims this year are:
- Run 2 Research and Development new writing projects 
- To stage one professional production.
- Host scratch nights to give a platform to untold stories and recent graduates.
- To host and run workshops that help creative graduates develop new skills and networks with other graduates and industry professionals.

OUR DEBUT PRODUCTION ‘TEDDY’ written by Tristan Bernays

We were planning to stage 'Teddy' live on the 19th & 20th of February 2021 at the Kenneth More Theatre in East London. Unfortunately due to the escalation of the COVID-19 this debut production from The Silver Lining will no longer go ahead.

Since the lockdown announcement we have been organising an online scratch night as an alternative to this performance as a way of sharing work and supporting graduates online until we can kick off in person.

We know this is disappointing as this funding was set to go towards a live production next month, however we will be staging a debut live production when the world allows us to before 2022. 

All donation rewards are still applicable and will be fulfilled as and when our first production takes place.

Our Costs and Challenges...

VIMEO ACCOUNT FOR A YEAR: We would like to keep a track record of all of our creative endeavours during the year by recording so we can use them as part of funding bids and for our own personal creative reflection. 

PUBLICITY PHOTOGRAPHS: We are aiming to host a scratch night for recent graduates work as and when COVID restrictions allow us to. In order to start with a bang, we would like to get some production shots we can then use to promote future projects, scratch nights and Workshops on our social media platform. 

HIRING WORKSHOP FACILITATORS: Something The Silver Lining wants to provide is a platform and network for young graduates who feel they need some creative support entering the industry. In order to make this happen we would like to invite industry professional’s and workshop facilitators and to run workshops at least once a month on different topics ranging from playwriting to producing for anyone who may want to try out a new skill or meet a new group of freelancers. We would like to make these as accessible as possible by making tickets as cheap as possible whilst still paying our visiting workshops facilitators a fair rate. 

EMAIL ADDRESS: our email address for our mailing list and all things company related is hello@thesilverlining.uk this email address costs us £10 a month and means we can keep new graduates and industry professionals up to date with what’s going on with the company every month. 

WEBSITE COSTS: our website keeps people updated and allows us our own platform to keep a record of the work we’ve been up to and are getting up to in the future.
