We don’t believe there are any other educational theatre companies around that can match us – for originality, flair, educational value and pure entertainment!

1. We get around!
We have been working with disadvantaged young people aged 5-19 in London and across Britain since 1994. We’ve toured extensively with theatre projects, delivered hundreds of hours of targeted intensive school and community-based workshops, run roadshows all over the country, featured at corporate events and training days, and premiered shows at the London and Edinburgh Fringe, all to rave reviews and fantastic feedback. Since we started, we have reached more than 400,000 young people and adults nationally, over two-thirds of whom live in London. That’s a lot of communities all over the country who have felt the positive effect of our work!
People who don’t know us often wonder just why we’re the best! Well, here are 10 very good reasons…
