Plays to See
Founded in 1987 by world-class performance storyteller and sector pioneer, Ben Haggarty, today we are the UK’s busiest and boldest performance storytelling programmer and promoter.
We create exuberant, intelligent, wild, weird and wonderful events in Bristol, Dorset, London, and across the UK, that draw people from all walks of life into a shared experience and the stunning content of international fairytale, folktale, myth and epic.
Our legendary live events and our amazing audiences are at the heart of what we do. Featuring outstanding performance storytellers and the very best new talent, our annual public programme of shows, festivals, and residencies can be found in theatres, at festivals, in castles, caves, village halls, rose gardens and derelict warehouses.
We create worlds in the imaginations of our audiences.
what we're up to
After dinner DJ, in-the-bath thinker, horn-blower and fairytale-teller-extraordinaire, Ben is why we are all here. You’ll find him on stage, leading our artist development programmes, and wrangling performers and audiences at our shows.
Programme Manager & producer
Junk shop rummager, indiscriminate gardener and optimistic cook – Kate is our extreme-good-ideas-haver who makes everything happen. You’ll find her up a ladder, running the box office, and lurking in the dark at the back of the theatre.
Marketing Manager / Digital Producer
Vocalist, Noh performer, and queen of charity shop clothes shopping – Laura does all the hard work that tells you that we exist and that buying a ticket or two would be a good thing to do. You’ll find her penning press-releases and at the controls of our social media.
