OUR MISSION

Upstart Theatre reimagines the world by making theatre playable.

Our Vision

Upstart Theatre make art for people who want to play. We create and support Playable Theatre – live performance which offers the audience the chance to take the leading role, in order to imagine how we can change the world together. We make our own live shows (both in live venues and online); we run co-creation projects with communities; we support emerging artists to learn about Playable Theatre; and we take our work beyond the theatre by making digital and physical games.
