    At Upstart Theatre, our mission is to help people reimagine the world by making theatre playable. We create and support playable theatre – live performance which gives the audience the leading role, in order to imagine how we can change the world together.

    We make our own live shows (both in live venues and online); we run co-creation projects with communities; we support emerging artists to learn about Playable Theatre; and we take our work beyond the theatre by making digital and physical games.
