ABOUT US /                       OUR (WO)MANIFESTO:


We are a theatre collective based in London, run by artistic director Rosie Hilal, and this is what we want:

  • To re-invent classics and bring European plays to British audiences 

  • To create 'new writing to tell old stories', incorporating feminist and anti-racist strategies

  • To incorporate other art forms, such as circus, dance and opera 

  • To encourage individuals of all backgrounds & bodies to apply for parts in our shows 

  • To enable parents of young children to participate by offering flexible working and job shares

  • To use Equity contracts wherever possible and pay a minimum of expenses in respect to the artists we work with
