Together, with your support, we can continue to make theatre that is exciting
relevant
and accessible.

As a company with our roots in touring, we strive to ensure theatre is truly accessible to everyone, visiting venues operating in areas of significant deprivation throughout the UK. We tackle current issues facing our society by:
  • Putting young and emerging artists, female artists, and artists from ethnic minorities at the heart of our company and productions.
  • Ensuring disability is no barrier to making art;
  • Confronting the stigma surrounding mental health issues in our productions.
