Tara is 30. Positioned between East & West, the company champions creative diversity through the production, promotion and development of work that defies all barriers to the imagination. The creative health of modern diverse humanity demands no passports.

No passports for the stories we tell
No passports for the artists we work with
No passports for our audiences.

Founded in 1977, the company tours vibrant adaptations of European and Asian classics, develops new writing and brings the great stories of the world to children in junior schools.

Tara's distinctive, ‘Binglish’ style of theatre, has resulted in co-productions with the National Theatre of Tartuffe (1990), The Little Clay Cart (1991) and Cyrano (1995). The company has also staged an epic of migration - Journey to the West (2002): a trilogy of plays.

Based in South London, and touring annually to England, Scotland and Wales, the company has also toured the Netherlands, Ireland, France, Belgium, Spain, Turkey, Egypt, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan and Australia.
