OUR MISSION

Upstart Theatre reimagines the world by making theatre playable.

Our Vision

Upstart Theatre uses theatre to help people imagine how we can change the world together. We do this by making theatre playable – by creating live performance which offers audiences the chance to engage in active, meaningful participation. We create our own shows for audiences across the UK and beyond; we work with communities to create work that’s meaningful to them; we support other artists to make their own shows; and we use technology to extend the reach of our work beyond the theatre.
