TPE TV is a new digital theatre venture set up by The Production Exchange as a response to the COVID19 crisis and begins to explore the place between live theatre and television. ELEPHANT'S GRAVEYARD is the first project of this sort and the proceeds will go to supporting the participants. We welcome suggestions for future projects.
The Production Exchange is a charity set up to support, mentor and offer opportunities to people working in the Creative Industries who are in the first three years of their professional careers. Since its inception in 2013 the company has worked with these early-career practitioners on a huge diversity of projects ranging from a multitude of Research and Development projects through dance and film projects to full production and national touring theatre shows. Alongside the production and mentoring side of the charity sits the Production Exchange Management, an agency for some 75 actors and other creative artists.
