A BIT ABOUT US

Switching on Manchester's Theatre Scene

We are a Manchester based theatre company creating new and exciting accessible work. Switch was founded by Ex-Royal Exchange Young Company graduates with the aim of being accessible and being an opportunity for young artists to run a professional theatre company and make the work they want to see. In 2018 we partnered with 53two, one of the country's most exciting new theatres and are now proudly supported by them as their resident Next Generation Artists.

 

From monthly Switch_Lab sessions, at the University of Manchester, to festivals and productions with 53two to community projects, one-to-one script surgeries and outreach projects, plus even more for our Switch_Members, we provide a range of artistic opportunities all year-round.
