They perform plays by Shakespeare and his contemporaries, as well as commissioning a wide range of original work from contemporary writers. Their purpose is to ensure that Shakespeare is for everyone, unlocking the power of his plays and live performance, throughout the UK and across the world.

They believe everybody’s life is enriched by culture and creativity and they:

  • Train generations of the very best theatre makers and nurture the talent of the future
  • Reach more than half a million young people and adults each year through their transformative learning programmes
  • Create projects with and for communities who have not historically engaged with their work

On their membership with SWM, they say:

“We recognise the climate emergency and work hard to embed environmental sustainability into our operations, creative work and business practice, making a commitment to continually reduce our carbon footprint.  We recognise we have a role to play in contributing to the West Midlands journey and the importance of being part of a network working towards a sustainable future.”

Our primary contact is Liz Minshall, Environment Manager.
