WORLD CLASS THEATRE

FOR EVERY-ONE

GET ON BOARD!

 

PurpleCoat believe that finance shouldn't be a barrier to accessing art. We aim to provide world-class classical theatre by breaking down social barriers and working with local actors to show that

theatre is, and can be, for all.
So what are you waiting for? We're a nice bunch who don't play by the rules, and we would love to welcome you into the family.

Please; say hello. We'd love to hear from you.

'Good morning to the day; and next, my gold!'

Volpone is rich. Very rich.

And now he wants more.

Working with his ever faithful servant, Mosca,
Volpone forms a cunning plan to fake illness

to steal gold from three wealthy bankers.

Sound familiar? Ben Jonson's hilarious slap-stick

comedy is as timely now as when it was written.

We produce a range of classical theatre productions for audiences across the UK and Ireland, and are committed to supporting access to, and engagement in, the arts, for people in the North of England. We want to work with people who we believe have genuine talent and give them the training and performance opportunities they deserve to get themselves noticed. Recruitment takes place regularly,
so GET IN TOUCH to get involved!

2016 will be a big year for PurpleCoat.
As we enter Sad.Man.Smiling into the film festival circuit and await its fate there, our Youth Theatre will be back this Christmas with the start of a new season of work looking at Shakespeare's Contemporaries. We all know Shakespeare was a genius, so now we aim to showcase some others. Their first production of Ben Jonson's slapstick comedy, Volpone, will begin our new season in December, and I can't wait to see the comedic prowess of this Youth Theatre, who did so well in A Midsummer Night's Dream last year, brought to work on this fantastic play.
This season of Shakespeare's Contemporaries will continue with two more shows next year, and we're delighted to announce that we'll be returning to Stratford-Upon-Avon with our summer show for performances there. Our main company, newly christened, Company One, will return at Christmas with a whole new ensemble of incredible talent from Liverpool. We aim to bring in a big year for Shakespeare with an epic telling of his 'two greatest plays' (The Guardian) - Henry IV Part 1 and 2. This will push our already hugely successful history with Shakespeare, with four and five star productions of Titus Andronicus, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, 
Twelfth Night and A Midsummer Night's Dream already under our belts, and welcome in an epic year for us in 2016 - which we're excited to reveal in the coming months.

We're proud as ever to serve the people of Liverpool and to continue to showcase the incredible people of this wonderful city as far as we can. 
As always, you're invited to follow our journey.
Thank you

Karl Falconer
Artistic Director

We welcome in our 7th Year with some of our biggest projects to date.
Booking for all shows will be available from September.
