Actors on stage

AlternativeTheatre

New Theatre for the 21st Century!

So many things ​have changed at the start of this millennium, and the recent

arrival of Covid has served to accelerate that change in Theatre. Our

alternative approach to this new Theatre is to go back to basics, to

stripped-back theatre, to collaborative performances

coming out workshops. 

Just as in our Alternative Shakespeare process, we seek in the first

instance to better understand what makes for good ​Theatre, and

then re-apply that learning in totally fresh circumstances.

 

To date we have created and performed new plays drawing on Greek myths, Americana, Workshop performances with script in hand, performed stage

audio pieces, English Mystery Plays, and community plays.

Just as importantly we have re-examined many aspects of how plays are created.

As well as Community Theatres, we have performed in Fringe Festivals,

Churches, bookshops, pubs, and institutes. A number of our plays

have been devised and researched by the company themselves,

focusing on themes and issues of the community.
