TPE TV is a digital theatre venture originally set up by The Production Exchange as a response to the COVID19 crisis. We are delighted to make it the platform on which our agency clients can broaden the reach of their work.
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.

Teddy Bears' Picnic
Inspired by the song and based on an original idea by Julian Butler
Every year Jo’s family used to have a big family gathering. A teddy bears’ picnic. It was brilliant. And then she got too old and too cool for that kind of thing. So she stopped going. But now she’s a grown up...kinda...she wishes she could have them all over again.
Grab your Teddy Bear or favourite cuddly toy, make some sandwiches and sit down to enjoy this heart-warming, lively performance that is fun for all the family!
Tickets also include a 'make your own teddy bear' craft video
