Theatre Without Walls

Award winning education and outreach since 2002

Our scripts are created from diary extracts, letters and other archive material in the figure's own words. We can research, script and perform authentic portrayals of scientists, explorers, artists and other figures. These can be theatrical, lecture style, tour guide style or character walkabout style.

-Actors in role interacting with your visitors

-Scripted recordings to make your displays come alive

-Poetry readings & performances of key texts relating to your exhibits

-Historic lectures delivered in character from original notes.

-“Day in the life of” or “through the eyes of…” events

-Script commissions undertaken and performed.
