OPENING THE DOOR TO THEATRE
Shows on your door, in your ears and at your theatre!
We create shows to be performed out in the community, for example on your very own doorstep. We also create radio plays and if you like the traditional theatre experience then you'll find us in a theatre too!

OUR CURRENT SHOWS
A Derby Ditty
JUNE 2021 DOOR STEP PRODUCTION
A Derby Ditty is a 10-15-minute live performance on your very own door-step. Co-created out of conversations we have had with Derby communities, in particular, Derby Carers and cared for.
The topic of conversation…..Derby!!!
From the Cathedral to the Eagle Market, from ‘Ey up mi Duck’ to Feste celebrations, A Derby Ditty encompasses Derby in all its glory. Performed by two local actor-musicians, we hope to leave you with a smile on your face and some music in your bones.
So don’t be mardy, grab ya kecks and stuff a cob down ya, for we could be Ditty’in on YOUR door-step soon!
Moving Bodies - Audio Play
AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD AUGUST 2021
Moving Bodies follows the story of one brave man, Bernard Roberts, turning from soldier to grave digger in the hope of giving his fellow fallen comrades a peaceful place to rest.
‘I suppose you could have called me the comedian of the company. How can you tell if a dog belongs to a Blacksmith….?’
‘….because when you tell him off, he makes a bolt for the door!
I didn’t say I was any good!’
Adapted from real life accounts, this one man show combines immersive story telling with a mix of trench humour, old war time songs and an original soundscape, to tell this darkly comic, touching story.
