This is a little venture with a big punch, bringing new drama to a theatre, living room or broom cupboard near you. We're working to unite emerging talent in the UK to create theatre with integrity. People say that theatre companies must have a USP. We think our USP is our work - we want to use new writing and emerging talent to make engaging, exciting theatre that lingers in the mind.  We're just starting out, but we want to encourage as much collaboration as possible and become something of a resource for theatre makers of all kinds.

We’re going to be debuting this April with our show Outsiders.

Jamie goes to exotic lengths to conquer her love-struck yearning. Mickiewicz inexplicably disappears over the Channel. Tracy’s fussy interfering turns nasty. Michelle and Stuart view a one-bed flat with an untidy past. Billy misses his mum.

Questions of love, heritage, loneliness and history are explored in three works by two writers united through one director, all trying to find out where the line is between us and them, friends and foes, the living and the dead, and home from away.
