    Comments from previous Prototype artists

    “I was amazed at the number of people who turned up. I’ve done a mass of scratch nights across the country, including some of the most well known ones, and I have never seen such a large audience. Seeing so many people supporting upcoming and unfinished work with their time and money (even if it was only £3 on the door) is really encouraging and it shows how committed and engaged the audience in Bristol is.” Ed Rapley

    “Prototype is a great opportunity to try out new ideas and see if they have legs, and there is always the chance of someone being in the audience who can help get your project off the ground.” Angus Barr

    “Prototype made us feel part of Bristol’s theatre scene, as does Theatre Bristol. I/we mean this quite sincerely, it is far better for us to be part of what everyone else in the theatre world is part of than being limited to the Disability Arts /Arts and Disability world. We are not naïve; we know it is still difficult for some professionals/practitioners to consider/review/comment/feedback on the theatre that Firebird makes. It is also difficult for Firebird to present work in a ‘mainstream’ arena but initiatives and opportunities like Prototype enable that to happen.” Firebird
