We welcome pitches to TIRING HOUSE on a range of topics dealing with performance practices and theatre history. We are regularly commissioning work that deals with the upcoming production or current season’s research agenda. We are also happy to feature research and criticism on related projects across the world and in languages other than English.

- What is the insight or approach you bring to the topic? In short: what’s your argument? How are you advancing the public conversation?
- What particular expertise can you offer on this issue?
- What are some possible larger ramifications of considering this particular case from your vantage point? For whom?
