Our New HQ

We are now based on Kings Crescent Estate, in a beautiful new award-winning building designed byKarakusevic Carson Architects and Henley Halebrown.

Our new HQ is an artist development space where we support non-mainstream theatre makers, working across a range of disciplines to create new live theatre.

We work with non-traditional theatre artists – drag artists, poets, actors, cabaret artists, actor-musicians, all who want to create a piece of theatre, often for the first time. Addressing the craft of playmaking in the context of experimental performance, our work with new artists breaks new boundaries in performance, yet at the same time honours the form of the play, with narrative and storytelling at the heart of everything we do.

The space is also a vibrant community space and we are currently dreaming up a refreshing, inspiring programme of activities & events to serve estate residents & the wider community. We need your help to raise funds to complete the development of the space so if you can spare a donation, big or small, please click here.

We are currently developing new work with some exceptional theatre makers including Hector Dyer‘s new play Thank You For Your PatienceIrina Brown’s stage adaption of the award winning children’s book The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane  and a new, untitled autobiographical piece by actor and reggae star Lorna Gayle.
