The Alchemist Theatre Company was founded in 2012 and produces critically acclaimed work both nationally and internationally.
Our focus is new work and we collaborate with writers, directors and creatives across multiple art forms, actively seeking out projects and stories that are socially and politically driven and that give a voice to those who need it.
We are experienced theatre practitioners who nurture ideas both in early development and right through to full theatrical production. Our work is always physically ambitious with distinct designs.
During this period of deep uncertainty for the creative arts we are passionate about creating new work and continuing to support artists in new ways. We are supported by Arts Council England and work alongside other venues, funding bodies and cultural organisations.
Stay safe. Stay creative.
