Open Clasp Theatre Company


Our aim is to Change the World, One Play at a Time by placing theatre at the heart of transforming the lives of disadvantage women and girls. We are an award winning women’s theatre company and a leading force in the North of England with a national and international reach.

We collaborate with women and young women on the margins of society to create bold and innovative theatre for personal, social and political change.Our work is regularly performed in theatres, prisons, schools, conferences and community centres and most recently, Edinburgh Fringe and off-Broadway in New York to national and international acclaim. The work resonates deeply into the communities where it is created, and ensures that outside these communities, the under-represented are seen in a new light.
