The London-based weekly newspaper and website for theatremakers and the entertainment industry, The Stage, published a feature on Cove Park, calling it “the perfect place for artists and theatre makers to develop work.” The piece features contributions by former residents, partners and supporters.
Tom Morris, artistic director of Bristol Old Vic, has said that “every serious theatremaker will want to work at Cove Park”.
Former resident, theatremaker and writer Naomi Sheldon, came to Cove Park in 2018, with support from new-writing company Paines Plough. Reflecting on her time, she said: “Cove Park was a slice of much-needed peace and calm in what otherwise felt like an unmanageable and stressful time – a time in which I was supposed to be creative but couldn’t block out the noise. This opportunity played a pivotal role in my career as a new playwright.”
