    Votive Theatre is led by Midlands based writer/director duo Katrina Bennett and Amy Crighton.

Using collaborative techniques and technology to make work that challenges form and aims to create intimacy with the audience.

    Narrative video games are starting to take over our media landscape, and their impact is ever expanding with a multitude of adaptations and spin offs coming to our screens. Director of CHOOSE YOUR FIGHTER, Amy Crighton, thinks about how we can take inspiration from these stories' original formats, to create a new kind of theatre that leans into the bias of always fighting for one person.

    "CPT is the first place we turn to when we have a new idea, knowing that experimentation and new ideas are always supported."
