Community Productions

For more than a decade we have brought together non-professional actors and backstage teams with professional theatre-makers to produce inspiring and memorable pieces of theatre.

Our Community Productions include work by the Community Company, Young Co, schools performances (such as Divided City) and co-productions with other organisations.
