We are a leading UK participatory theatre company with over 40 years history producting ground-breaking shows. Our work exists to engage those least involved in arts and cultural activity. We produce multi-sensory, accessible and inclusive touring theatre and outreach arts activities locally and nationally. 


Our mission is to transform lives through theatre. We engage with disadvantaged communities where opportunities are lacking, because we can see the benefits that participatory theatre can bring to them. We champion untold stories and are experts in engaging with hard-to-reach individuals and communities; we bring their voices to the forefront through theatre and other art forms to improve wellbeing and support them to fulfil their potential.


Our vision is a society where everyone can engage with the arts to have their voices heard. To achieve this we:

  • Facilitate people to tell their stories
  • Nurture people’s creative impulse
  • Respond to the changing needs of communities
  • Offer training, support and mentoring  outreach arts activities locally and nationally.
