We want to create a stirring reaction within our audience. We want to produce work which engages and enriches our audiences’ life by presenting plays and theatre experiences which challenge and celebrate our humanity. Theatre is the great collaborative art form and we want to programme plays and create theatrical opportunities which allow all the branches of theatre’s collaborative arts to cohere around a single experience.
We want to produce and present work which has integrity. Plays which thrive in the moment - which is the only place theatre can exist - in the space between the audience and the stage. We want to create theatrical experiences where our performers submerge into the scenes that are genuine.
We want to produce plays that, when you leave them, you feel a need to reconnect with the people you love. We want to create work which reunites people; not only with the communities that they live in, but to reconnect people with themselves. We want to raise questions about the human condition - questions which they may have already pondered or which may be new to them. We want to produce plays that celebrate our humanity and which have an optimistic message that promotes a hopeful future for our species.
We want you to come to a Court play or workshop and we want you to be able to identify with what it is to be human, so you can walk out of the theatre with your humanity glowing. We want you to celebrate the shared experience with 400 people from your community. We're in the business of creating memories that will be with you for the rest of your life.
