Pan Pan Mentoring

Pan Pan Theatre have instigated a new Mentoring Programme for artists who have a classic story, an inkling of a song, a must see film or play; all art begins with one person and the germ of an idea to be developed. This year’s mentor Tim Crouch and one of the participants Kate Heffernan are in studio.
