Their groundbreaking play Out/LOUD is the UK's longest running anti-homophobia Theatre-in-education project. HTC were chosen to present the premiere reading of 'The Laramie Project: 10 Years Later' as part of an international event by Tectonic Theater Project. In 2017 HTC created the verbatim play Be More Martyn: The Boy with the Deirdre Tattoo about Martyn Hett, who lost his life in the Manchester Arena Attack.
