We’re a Birmingham-based theatre company, led by Co-Directors Gareth Nicholls and Philip Holyman in collaboration with Producer Zoe Roberts. ˜Thou Shalt Not Bore’ is our only commandment: we make transformative art that puts our audiences experience first, its forms and contexts informed by the audiences we’re making it for or with.

Recent projects include:
MoonFest, a cross-arts festival attracting 10k+ visitors (incl. 31% first-time visitors) at Midlands Arts Centre;
Rocket Fuel, an immersive dining experience inspired by Neil Armstrong’s meal plan during his journey to the Moon;
I Ain’t Afraid of No Ghost, a production made specifically for rural touring  – 2019 winner, NRTF Performance of the Year;
The Stolen Year, an audio installation investigating the experiences of older people during the COVID pandemic.

We’re an Associate Company at Midlands Arts Centre.

As part of our wider work, we curated East Meets West, a network for the East and West Midlands theatre-making community between 2017 and 2022.

Co-Director Gareth Nicholls is currently ITC’s Chair.
