The company produces and tours new plays for the theatre that are bold, urban, uncompromising, and contemporary. Telling stories of ordinary people caught in extraordinary situations, the company places an emphasis on character, text, and narrative to create richly imagined worlds. Integral to the company are its highly regarded participatory performance and literacy development activities for young people. The company has a particular focus towards young people who are at risk, and not in mainstream education.
Audiences, participants, and practitioners speak of the ‘Theatre Absolute experience', struck by the inspirational intensity of the company, and its tough determination to create high quality, authentic theatre that finds its roots in the fabric of an increasingly complex, ambiguous, and compelling world.
