Our mission is to use theatre as a catalyst for creating healthy, culturally connected communities.
Our manifesto guides our work.
Our work is specific. We take inspiration from people & places in Somerset
Our work is representative. We reflect Somerset’s diverse communities
Our work is relevant. We create authentic and entertaining stories
Our work is local, regional and national. We make it in cities, towns & villages across Somerset. We take it to audiences on their doorstep, in Somerset and beyond
Our work is rooted. We focus on Somerset because it’s our home but we recognise the importance in maintaining a wider global perspective.
