We are a theatre company based in Brighton, England.
We work with true stories from history, tall stories from folklore (and with stories that lie somewhere in between) to devise shows for a contemporary audience about remarkable worlds, people, times, and places.
We are inspired by starting points that theatre as an artform is uniquely suited to explore. We collaborate with practitioners from different disciplines to combine elements onstage in the best way we can find to serve our story, and to share it with the public.

The White Cemetery in Kabul stands as a tiny icon
of misadventure, and the final resting place for an international cast of soldiers, explorers, aid workers and diplomats whose deaths span three centuries. An English ensemble exhume a litany of stories from a foreign land to question what is done in our name, in a layered reflection on change as told through the eyes of a father and son.
