We bring together Medway’s communities and professional theatre-makers to collaborate on productions and creative projects that tell important local stories.

Our Impact

We are a charity and aim to work with disadvantaged and excluded communities. We believe that everybody – no matter their background – should have the opportunity to take part in theatre-making and that this process is transformative.
