About us

We are a Kentish cooperative of actors, directors, writers and musicians who have come together to create theatre which explores pressing social and political issues in dialogue with local people. The aim is to create an accessible platform for these voices, and at the same time explore innovative creative practice. 

About us

The Play

In the ongoing public debate surrounding Brexit, something often seems to be forgotten: the quiet, ordinary lives that have to go on in its shadow. ‘The Plant’ is a devised play with traditional music that dramatises these lives, exploring the impact of Brexit and the divisions it intensifies in an imagined community somewhere in England. The story centres on a young couple, Niall and Maddie, and their attempt to build a life together in the shadow of profound change.

The Project

Lots has been said about how and why playwrights write plays and about where their words come from. But what about when the actors themselves come up with those words? What made them think of saying those lines when they said them? And what makes those words any 'good'? Members of our team conduct research at the University of Kent into what makes improvised dialogue worth writing down as a script, into the processes of devised theatre more broadly, and into what 'theatricality' is really all about.
