Open Clasp makes truthful, risk taking and award-winning theatre informed by the lived experiences of working class women, women disenfranchised in theatre and society, those from minority communities and women affected by the criminal justice system.

Open Clasp is at a unique moment in its history. Having taken our work to new heights, achieving great success with Key Change at the Edinburgh Fringe and off-Broadway in 2015-16, our work has been catapulted onto a national and global stage, taking the marginalised female voices and the artistic excellence of the North to new audiences and decision makers, demonstrating the power of theatre and championing the stories and creativity of the region on a major scale.

Our Values:

To collaborate with some of the country’s most marginalised women and young women, placing their lived experience at the
centre of our creative processes

  • Ensure the voices of those women are heard by audiences including policy makers
  • Make space for discussion, debate and critical conversations
  • Promote respect, equality and inclusion

We are looking for a woman with exceptional entrepreneurial and producing skills to join our team at this exciting time for the company. The Creative Producer will work with our staff team and Board of Trustees, being responsible for planning, developing and implementing strategies to increase the artistic, social and financial value of the company.

Due to the nature of our work the post is open to women only (exempt under the Equality Act 2010 Schedule 9, Part 1).
