The RAW Emerging Arts Platform enables choreographers, live artists, playwrights, performers and devisors about to graduate from the Drama Department at Exeter to showcase their work on a professional stage.

The event first took place in June 2013 in response to student requests for an opportunity to invite future employers and reviewers to their work without the uncertainties of a schedule within the academic programme. 

Each year has seen a larger offering, and we're now opening the platform to recent graduates who have set up theatre companies in the area. The regular audience for RAW includes staff, students, their families, members of the public, producers, directors and Drama alumni, who offer invaluable advice and feedback.

Information about the performances and schedule for the next RAW event (as well as past event information) can be found at
