About Us

Theatre Without Walls have been producing award winning projects and productions since 2002. We have partnered with some of the UK and Ireland’s leading venues to bring the arts to more young people and community groups than ever.  We are based in Northern Ireland and work across the UK and Ireland.

In addition to producing our own creative work, we consult for charities, local authorities, businesses and arts organisations including national museums and regional theatres. We also provide subsidised education and community access to our services directly to schools and community organisations.

Our schools programme has been devised by teachers to provide flexible and targeted workshops and training that is geared towards schools needs. We can offer schools cost effective block booking options-so we can deliver several different workshops on a single school visit.

We continue to foster and develop engaging theatre events. Our work is about interpreting & exploring & sharing the world around us. We can deal with difficult issues, identity, heritage, community engagement & the choices faced by individuals and society. We bring our expertise to business, local government, education and community sectors. We favour new interactive work and we see artistic creativity as an integral part of, rather than as separate to society.

This website aims to give an overview of what we do and the services we provide, however, the vast majority of our work is created on a bespoke and innovation orientated basis to client specifications- so we hope you find what you are looking for but if not please do ask!

Thank you & keep safe, keep busy and keep in touch!
