Kali Theatre offers unique opportunities in new theatre writing for women of South Asian descent

We produce striking, contemporary theatre for audiences from all backgrounds across the UK and beyond

  • Annual full production and short tour of a new play
  • Discovery Programme that seeks out and showcases aspiring playwrights
  • Festival Programme that supports new play development by more experienced playwrights
  • Kali Labs to prepare new plays for production
  • Opportunities for female theatre directors, assistant directors and dramaturgs
  • Leading roles for actors of South Asian descent
  • Dramaturg training for women of South Asian descent


Our work has empowered South Asian women to play a leading role in theatrical creativity – making a significant contribution to putting greater diversity into British theatre onstage, backstage and in the audience to better reflect modern Britain and enrich its cultural life

24 of the writers we were the first to present have gone on to write for other theatre companies and for TV and radio – making UK drama writing significantly more diverse.

During the past 5 years, we engaged 756 actors – 68% of which were BAME – showcasing them in leading roles and inspiring more diverse casting.
