Following our much-cited report on British Theatre Repertoire 2013, BTC is producing a comparable report on British Theatre 2014, also supported by Arts Council England and written in collaboration with UK Theatre/Society of London Theatre.  Like the 2013 document, this report will cover the shape and performance of the repertoire of British theatre, as well as its regional and gender breakdown. It will be published in April 2016, and its findings will be presented at a plenary session of the Theatre 2016 Conference, to be held on 12-13 May 2016.
