ETT are a UK based international touring company. We create theatre of outstanding quality, imagination and ambition; work which interrogates and celebrates contemporary England and reflects the diversity of our nation.
We stage a balance of new and classic work, to make theatre that is imaginative, responsive and alive: sparking dialogue and fostering connectivity. We are proud to tour shows that reach the widest possible range of audiences across the UK and beyond, engaging in a national and global conversation.
We believe in the power of creative collaboration, and work in partnership with visionary artists and venues to create work on a variety of scales. We believe that touring is a democratic and imaginative way to meet audiences in their home communities and engage in storytelling on a national canvas. At the heart of our practice is a drive to entertain, engage, challenge and inspire. We are proud to deliver community-based participation work across the length & breadth of the country alongside our touring.
Each year we work with around 15 venue partners, tour to 25 towns and cities and reach an average audience of 75,000 people.
