Live Theatre Company was founded on Tyneside in 1973 by, amongst others, actor Tim Healy. Its work has a strong regional identity and the company aims to attract new audiences for its accessible work and to its friendly and informal theatre space.
The company originally toured its work regionally to non traditional theatre settings, such as community halls and working men's clubs. The company was creating plays and stories that were relevant to the north east community and sought to break down barriers by presenting this work to ordinary working class people within their own communities.
