A BIT ABOUT US
Switching on Manchester's Theatre Scene
We are a Manchester based theatre company creating new and exciting accessible work. Founded in 2018 by Royal Exchange Young Company graduates, we aim to provide an opportunity for emerging artists to make the work they want to see. We spent our first two years producing our own work, running R&D sessions with writers, doing community outreach work with the Royal Exchange, and devising a large ensemble production, which ran until March 2020.
In 2022 we restructured and relaunched, signing a year-long residency with 53two theatre as their Resident Next Generation Artists. We have since been described as “one of the most exciting theatre companies in Manchester, nurturing northern talent, creating impressive work, and running local workshops.”
From monthly free Switch_Lab sessions, at the University of Manchester, to festivals and productions, community and outreach projects, we provide a range of artistic opportunities all year-round.
