We make theatre with new writing at its core, theatre which reveals stories hidden in plain sight – stories all around us that we are too busy to notice. We aim to encourage debate, make theatre for everyone and reach out to overlooked audiences. We are committed to making new, exciting and relevant work and to involving artists and communities in its creation.
We rely on grants, trusts and donations to make much of our work – without the support of people like you, we simply couldn’t exist as an organisation, or make the work that we do. Our friends’ scheme is a great way for you to be involved and to have a closer link to the company.
We have three levels of membership – please email us for information on how to sign up - or simply hit the 'Donate' button to make a one-off gift via PayPal.
