Hi there, we're Work In Progress Theatre!
We're a dynamic and vibrant company fuelled by creatives who are passionate about sharing important messages through theatre. 
We know the impact that theatre can have. The feeling of sitting in suspended disbelief and being transported into a story; of forgetting about our own stresses or worries and watching somebody else's life unfold. And we believe that theatre can be so much more than just entertainment. It can be a vehicle for change. A way to raise awareness about important issues which we relate to, and to inspire audiences to take action. We aim to combine these, creating entertaining productions with important messages at the core of our work. 
We want to make theatre which captivates and inspires. We want to challenge our audiences, inspiring them to take action on global issues. We want people to see themselves and their experiences reflected in what they're looking at on stage. And we want to spread the power of theatre, encouraging everybody to find their own voice through the arts. 
Have a browse of this site to learn more about what we do, how you can get involved, and how you can support our work. And don't be shy – drop us a line if you have any questions or just want to say hi. We're a friendly bunch and always happy to chat!
